I have this ROUND(ISNULL(lbs,0)/2000,4,2) as tons in a select statement wanting the data to show as 00.00 but it still shows as 00.00000000. the actual data that shows is 20.090000000 and i just want 20.09. If ROUND will not do this what will. I have SQL 2008 R2 and it does not recognize FORMAT. Thanks.

Instead of ROUND, use CAST to DECIMAL
CAST(ISNULL(lbs,0)/2000,DECIMAL(19,2))
That said, formatting is best done at the presentation layer such as Reporting Services or GUI.
