Below are four functions that can be used to format a number to two decimal places in SQL Server. The most obvious way to do it is to convert the number to a decimal type. Two functions that can do this for us is CAST () and CONVERT (). We can use this method even if the number is already a decimal value but with more decimal places.

The displayed value has two decimal points because DECIMAL in CAST () has two decimal points. SQL Server provides another option: CONVERT (). This is not a SQL Standard function like CAST (). The query below shows its use.

SQL is performing the division using integer datatypes. Multiply one of the inputs that you are using for division by 1.00. CAST ( ( (COUNT (QA.RequestID)*1.00)/COUNT (DISTINCT [User].Id)) AS decimal (10,2))

In Transact-SQL statements, a constant with a decimal point is automatically converted into a numeric data value, using the minimum precision and scale necessary. For example, the constant 12.345 is converted into a numeric value with a precision of 5 and a scale of 3.
