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

DEC
4,325.00

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.

Jo

The following will convert your "Field" values to 2 decimals:

SELECT DEC(SUM(Field/100),11,2) FROM File WHERE ABBA = 111483
