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

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

"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.
