Numeric string format in HANA

How do I get string value of "100.50" from decimal value of 110.5? In SQL I can do CONVERT(NUMERIC(3, 2), '100.5'), but in HANA, TO_DECIMAL('100.5', 3, 2) still returns 100.5, not 100.50.

    Can it be that you have an older Hana version? In 68 this works:

    hdbsql=> select TO_DECIMAL('100.5', 3, 2) from dummy;
    TO_DECIMAL('100.5',3,2)
    100.50
