Maybe "Field" is actually defined in the database with zero decimals ???
If true, you would need to divide Field by 100,

Hi All,
 Iam trying to sum field and then converting it into decimal.
The orginal field type is packed with no decimal.
SELECT DEC(SUM(Field),11,2) FROM File WHERE ABBA = 111483                                                         
Output of the query
But the output what I wanted is 43.25
Not sure how to achieve the task. Can you some one please suggest.
Thanks in advace.
