Hello friends,
I'm importing data from excel and performing derived column on REV column before dumping the data in the destination table.
 
My problem is, suppose the column contains 6180.00 and I write expression in derived column as below
6180.00 / 1000
It gives me 6.17 as output
 
But if i try following in SQL Server
select 6180.00/1000
It gives me 6.1800000 as output
 
Can I know what is happening and why
What i want as final result is 6.18
 
Any idea how to do it?
 
Thanks in advance

Solution 1

So what I did is, I would force SSIS to compute higher precision value and then ROUND it to the precision I want.
So following gave me required output
 
ROUND(((DT_DECIMAL,4)[REV]) / ((DT_DECIMAL,4)1000),2)
 
Hope this helps Yu Smile | :)
