Formatting Results from DB to show Decimals

    Hi there,

    I am having an issue with my page displaying the decimal places for whole numbers.
    In the database itself (mySQL), it shows up correctly (ex - 12.0), but when I display the result, it displays as just 12

    here is the code I am using to pull the result:

    <td><%=rsPlayers("Total") %></td>

    Is there anyway I can format that to have it show the decimal value for every number, even if its a whole?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    one way:
    <td><%=Convert.ToDouble(rsPlayers("Total")) %></td>

    another way:
    <td><%=Convert.ToDouble(rsPlayers("Total")).ToString("N") %></td>

    in second way you may do any formating if its needed. but before those lines I suggest you to play with your sql select for this. because it can be solved there.
