PreparedStatement.setFloat not entering precise values in db

Hi
I have written a program where I am entering a record in to the
database using a prepared statement. The problem is for float datatypes, the
values being entered into the database are not rounded off. e.g. 1.65 is
being entered as 1.64999999
I am using the Sybase database and the driver is
com.sybase.jdbc2.jdbc.SybDriver.

If I use staement instead of prepared statement, i am getting the correct values.
Regards

Can you post the two code fragments you're using?
Make sure you use the UBB CODE tags.

Thanks

"java dunce",

We're pleased to have you here with us on the Ranch, but there are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are required. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

Thanks!
