So fast reply! Thank you very much.
It's right.I had tried it after post the problem,had the same reuslt that you example.
I can also understand your explain.But the field's datatype in Table is numeric(18,9),the Field value in Table is 13.275000000, of course display as 13.275 in 3dp.So I still not understand,
why cast( 13.275000000 as numeric(18,2)) = 13.27,but
cast( 13.275 as numeric(18,2)) = 13.28?
Other info: the result of cast( 13.275000000 as numeric(18,1)) = 13.3, I can accept it.
Thanks again.

regrads.

I am getting a slightly different result in iSQL

SQL> select cast(13.275 as numeric(9,2)) from rdb\$database;

CAST
============

13.28

SQL> select cast(13.228 as numeric(9,2)) from rdb\$database;

CAST
============

13.23

Both of which look reasonable to me. Perhaps Value1 is not what you
think it is? It could reasonably be 13.2749999999, which would be
rounded correctly to 13.27, but it may round it to 13.275 when it
displays it in 3dp.
