Omnidex SQL Function: ROUND

Description

The ROUND function returns a numeric expression rounded to a specified number of decimal places. If the value specified by n is positive and longer than the digits after the decimal point, 0 is added after the fraction digits. If the value specified by n is negative and larger than or equal to the digits before the decimal point, 0.00 is returned.

Syntax

ROUND(numeric_expression [, n])

numeric_expression

Required. Any expression that returns a numeric expression.

n

Optional. n is an integer indicating the number of digits to the right of the decimal. The default is 0.

Example

                       42.500000                         43.000000

Note that floating point values cannot represent ever value, and the values shown below are as close as floating point values can represent.

> select latitude, round(latitude, 1) from countries;

LATITUDE                          ROUND(COUNTRIES.LATITUDE,1)
--------------------------------  --------------------------------
                       42.500000                         42.500000
