Abstract

SQL Server supports integer, decimal, and floating-point numbers. Working with numbers requires an understanding of the types of numbers available and what they are capable of doing. Implicit conversion rules sometimes lead to surprising results from seemingly simple-to-understand expressions. The recipes in this chapter show some of the more common operations as well as techniques for guarding against unexpected and unwanted results.
