[SOLVED] Storing Money Values


Recommended Posts

I think Decimal is more accurate because it stores numbers to a specific number of decimal places.  Float and Double give rounded numbers.

Add up a bunch of numbers that are stored as Float and Double and they may be out a penny. Add up a bunch of numbers stored as decimal and they will be exact.  Accounts and auditors like exact if that may be an issue for you.  ;)
