I am generating a dynamic query, which is giving error.
Actually it requires integer value, while casting not a column name.

The query seems wrong. The first CAST method should end after NUMERIC.

Solution 1

this way..
declare @AfterPoint varchar(3);
	set @Afterpoint=2;
declare @val numeric(18,9);
	set @val=1234.89535656;
declare @SQLQuery varchar(max);
	Set @SQLQuery = 'select cast(' + convert(varchar(100), @val) + ' as numeric(18,' + @AfterPoint + '))';

other solution for tabular format
declare @val numeric(18,9);
    set @val=1234.89535656;
declare @a varchar(max);
set @a='';
with a as
select 'NUM' as ftype, '2' as Afterpoint
union all
select 'NUM' as ftype, '3' as Afterpoint
union all
select 'NUM' as ftype, '4' as Afterpoint
select @a = @a + ' select ' + Afterpoint + ' as Afterpoint,convert(varchar(100),CAST(' + convert(varchar(100), @val) + ' AS NUMERIC(18,'+ Afterpoint + '))) as FormattedVal' +  ' union all '
from a
select @a=substring(@a,1,len(@a)-10);
Happy Coding!

thanks for the answer ,,, but as u are equating @Afterpoint=2;,, actually here @Afterpoint=is the column value which could b every number,,,not always 2
