Returns the rounded value of a numeric value according to the specified number of decimal places.
// Retrieve the rounded value of -16.238167
ResRound = Round(-16.238167, 2)
// Returns -16.24
<Result> = Round(<Numeric value> [, <Number of decimals>])
<Result>: Integer or real
Rounded value of the specified numeric value.
<Numeric value>: Real or currency
Numeric value to round. We recommend that you use the currency type in order to get reliable results.
<Number of decimals>: Optional integer
Number of decimals to return. No decimal is returned if this parameter is not specified.
If <Numeric value> is included between:
- 0 and 0.49: the number is rounded to 0. For example, 3.2 is rounded to 3 (no decimal).
- 0.5 and 0.99: the number is rounded to 1. For example, 3.7 is rounded to 4 (no decimal).
Caution: The rounding performed with the "Real" type is not precise. Indeed, the operations performed with the "real" types are not precise because of the computing representation of reals. To get an exact rounding, we recommend that you use the Currency
type that is using an exact memory representation. For more details, see the real
The decimal separator for the real numbers is "." (dot).
