Your Supplied Database

I have added products to your supplied MySQL database

One item is £2.50 per unit

When I log in and change the figure to £2.50 - as soon as I save it - it reverts to £2.5

How can I make the 0 remain visible please

Here is how you would want to set the data type in the database table:
aa258832(v=SQL.80).aspx

You would want to use decimal(x,2). The x is how many total digits you would need, so something like 6 would most likely be enough for a store. With x as 6, you would be able to store a max of 9999.99 in the column.

Doesnt work Jimmy

I have gone into Localhost and selected the database

I have selected edit on the ProductPrice line

Changed from Float to Decimal and put x,6 in the following line

I get this error code

#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'x,6) NOT NULL' at line 1

Help please - I am new to MySQL

You're supposed to replace the x with a number. Please read through the link I provided, which explains it in more detail.

You want something like decimal(6,2) as the type.
