Posted by jpluimers on 2016/12/08

Windows 10 on ARM will supply a long-rumored feature: The ability to run 32-bit Win32/x86 desktop applications—Apple iTunes, Adobe Photoshop, Google Chrome, whatever—directly on the system, unchanged.

Wow, just wow.

SQL Server, Modulo, floats

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/12/08

SQL server % (modulo, not mod) operator doesn’t like floats (with reason).

You should get rid of the floats as they will give inaccurate results.

As a workaround, cast either through an integer or through a decimal: sql server modulo float – Google Search

CAST(CAST(TheInaccurateFloatValue AS decimal(38,19)) % ModuloValue AS float)

The decimal(38,19) is the maximum non-float precision you get.

( cast(dividend as integer) % divisor ) + ( dividend - cast(dividend as integer))
