I have a field called T_Amount data type is float,

e.g= T_Amount=11800

When i make formula in query (11800/24)*35.25=17331.25

but actually if i make in calculator (11800/24)*35.25=17331.24999

i want this full figure.

Is i need to change the data type?

What I have tried:

i was using float for amount. when i was doing divide result is not accurate

Never use float for financial amounts. Use integer or decimal.

SELECT (CONVERT(DECIMAL,11800)/24)  * 35.25
Try this query,

SELECT CAST((11800.00/24.00) as DECIMAL(20,5)) * 35.25
