Conversion of String to int


#1

I converted a string value to int

CAST(TestSth3.Emp_Code AS int)
it returns 1,234 but i need 1234

i am using vb.net 2008.

Thanks

The following does return the data in the format you require in SQL Server

SELECT CAST('1234' AS INT) --Result 1234

If this is in .Net, perhaps you should look at the formatting options available to you there. Where possible you should always look to do any formatting in the presentation layer and not in the database.
