Value Truncates When Using Float Datatype

Hi all,

Below is my query which truncates the value of the float variable. I have no clue why it truncates. Can anyone help me out?

Declare @myValue Float
set @myValue = 0.00456456676577567
Print @myValue

Can you use decimal instead of float?

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Declare @myValue decimal(20,20)
  2. set @myValue = 0.00456456676577567
  3. Print @myValue
