SELECT Mean_F, StdDev_F, NumGadgets, LastUpDate, Proc_FKey, NumFails, NumFails / NumGadgets AS MeanFailure
FROM dbo.StatProcMain
WHERE (Proc_FKey = 7)

If I use + or * I get the calculated field, but / and I get 0.
where numGadgets = 50 and NumFails = 10

How do I represent division ? Thanks

/ - does integer division if both denominator & numerator r integers
thus 3/7 = 0

convert either or both to float or decimal

OH I know part of the problem, the calc field wants to be an integer, what do I do to specify a real ( when I reversed it to get 50/10 I got an answer ... So please help with field specification

Check the convert function in Books OnLine of Query Analyzer

check this

declare @a int
Set @a = 3
Print @a/7

and then check
Print convert(decimal(4,2), @a)/7

Use the same in ur fields
Print 3/7.0

Thanks I will have to see how I could use that within an ad hoc query instead of a stored procedure

SELECT Mean_F, StdDev_F, NumGadgets, LastUpDate, Proc_FKey, NumFails, CONVERT(real, NumFails) / CONVERT(real, NumGadgets) AS MeanFailure
FROM dbo.StatProcMain
WHERE (Proc_FKey = 5)

IT NOW WORKS FINE THANKS TO SRINIKA !
