Art of BI: C# Convert Decimal to String

Christian Screen | | July 13, 2009

Microsoft usually has good documentation but on this particular topic I always felt that it was lacking. Here is the MS core documentation for converting a decimal to a string, http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/59095yyw.aspx.

I recently needed to ensure that I was only getting only two decimal places on a dollar amount as I converted it into a string and was going to write a nice lengthy post myself and then I found this really nice post over at csharp-examples (view post).

Mainly I was looking for the following syntax just to ensure that I was setting up things correctly:
[sourcecode language=’csharp’]
// just two decimal places
String.Format(“{0:0.00}”, 123.4567); // “123.46”
String.Format(“{0:0.00}”, 123.4); // “123.40”
String.Format(“{0:0.00}”, 123.0); // “123.00”
[/sourcecode]

They have some other great custom formatting items as well. Check ’em out.

Scripting Out the Logins, Server Role Assignments, and Server Permissions

Imagine there are over one hundred logins in the source server and you need to migrate them all over to the destination server. Wouldn’t it be awesome if we could automate the process by generating the scripts for the required tasks?
