Round (Expression Function)


The Round function (ROUND) rounds a number up or down to a certain number of decimal places


The Round function has two parameters, one of which is required:


Allowed Inputs: field value or number

The first required parameter is the number that will be rounded. Either use the use the Query Builder to choose a field that contains the value or use type a value to enter a number.


Allowed Inputs: field value or a number

The second optional parameter of the Round function is the number of decimal places to round to. If no value is provided then 0 will be used and the value will be rounded up to the nearest integer value. If the number is positive then the rounding will include that number of digits after the decimal. If the number is negative then the number will round with that many zeros on the left of the decimal.


The output of the Round function is a number representing the value rounded to the nearest decimal place.


For example ROUND(-5.56) would result in -6 and ROUND(5.56) will result in 6. Using positive precision for example ROUND(5.33,1) would result in 5.3 and using negative precision ROUND(12.33,-1) would result in 10.
