Update Column to add Decimal Point

Hi all,

have a 'money' field in the SQL 2000 table that users enter 200 (for example
which represents 2.00) without the decimal point, what I need is to have a
command or something that adds the decimal point before the last 2 digits,
so user enters 200 and the value stored in the table is 2.00 bearing in mind
that this value could be anything from 1.00 to 50.00.

The user enters the data from an asp page on a touch screen device.

Regards
Simon

<script language='jscript' runat='server'>

function addDecPoint(x){
var s = (x<0)?'-':'';
x = Math.abs(x);
x=(x<100)?((x+1000)+'').substr(1):''+x;
return s + x.replace(/(\d\d)$/,'.$1');
};

</script>

ok,

field in the table is called car_park the asp page is slightly more
difficult as the user enters the data via a .swf file. can this be run as a
command somewhere else, below is the code on the asp file (bearing in mind
that there is not actual text field here) some more assistance would be
appreciated.

Dim id, waiting, carPark
Dim driverNo, sId

Dim sql, conn

Dim sResponse

sResponse = ""

id = Request.Form("id")
waiting = Request.Form("waiting")
carPark = Request.Form("carPark")

driverNo = Request.Form("driverNo")
sId = Request.Form("sId")

If (Len(id) = 0 OR NOT IsNumeric(id)) OR Len(waiting) = 0 OR Len(carPark)
= 0 OR Len(driverNo) = 0 OR Len(sId) = 0 Then
Response.Write("end_done=ERROR")
Response.End()
End If

Set conn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
conn.Open g_connectionString

' Updating booking_form...

sql = "UPDATE booking_form SET waiting_in_minutes='" & waiting & "',
car_park='" & carPark & "', time_cleared=GETDATE(), allocated='COMPLETED'
WHERE ID=" & id

conn.Execute(sql)

Where is your money field you specified in the original posting I added
above???

And you specified a value coming FROM a database, so I would need to se a
SELECT SQL, not an UPDATE SQL, meseems.

================================================== =

You can easily change the integer cents value coming from that field in
vbscript and write that:

<% 'vbs
response.write " " & addDecPoint(centsValueFromDatabase)
%>

The jscript part can be put anywhere in the vbs-using asp page,
usually I put it at the bottom.
