    Formating numbers

    Hi,

    I want to round up number to three decimal places.

    I tried

    trunc(x,3)

    but it failed when trunc(52.5) = 52.5 and I wanted 52.500

    I think I should use to_char(x,9999.999) but wait may be the numbers invlove will be very small or it could be really large so do you think I should use

    t0_char(x,999999999999999.999) or is there any other good idea????


    Thanks,
