When using a CAST statement in a query to CAST a decimal field as a char field, is there a way to prevent the .00 from being automatically generated? For instance if I have a value of 1925 in my decimal field when I CAST it as a char field it displays as 1925.00, this being a problem as 1925 actually represents $1,925K. Thank you in advance for any help you may be able to give.

One option is to CAST the decimal field to INT first, then to CHAR:

SELECT CAST(CAST(YourDecimalColumn AS INT) AS VARCHAR(10)) FROM YourTabl

or convert to varchar then use replace() to remove the '.00'.

select replace(convert(varchar(10), YourDecimalColumn), '.00', '')

Do you have to do this in SQL ? Can you do this in your font end application ?
