I'm having some trouble with my asp.net page and my sql database. What I'm trying to do is allow the user to upload an number to the database, the number is a money amount like 2.00 (£2.00) or 20.00(£20.00). I've tried using money and smallmoney datatypes but the numbers usually end up looking like this in the database...
I enter 2.00 and in the database it looks like 2.00000, and even if I enter the information directly into the database I get the same results. I'm not going to be using big numbers with lots of decimal places like this 1000,000,0000. Can anyone help me? All I want is to know what to set the value to on my aspx page and what setting to set the field to in my database, I'd just like two pound to appear as 2.00. any help would be great.
