View Full Version : ORDER BY ASC using price??

09-04-2008, 09:17 AM
Got a bit of an issue I cant figure out.

I am returning a query from a DB and need to display it by price, cheapest first.

In the DB I have 24.95, 49.95, 74.95 & 9.95.

Using ORDER BY ProdPrice ASC the values are displayed in the same way because the 9.95 has the highest first digit.

How can I get round this so that it displays 9.95, 24.95, 49.95 & 74.95

Hope this makes sense. Regards,

Make sure you are using the correct MySQL field type.

Change to the field type to FLOAT if you haven't already.

Then you can use ORDER BY ProdPrice [ASC,DESC]

Thanks LUX,

That work a treat after I sussed out the 'precision'. To start with it kept adding a zero to the end of each value as 'precision' was set to 3. Changed it to 2 and all was fine.

Thanks again mate, and cheers DJ.
