Round Controlled

Rounds a number with options

Parameters

  • Number - Number to be rounded
  • Directions - Direction of rounding
  • Decimals - How many decimal places



Parameters in Detail

Number

The first parameter is a number that you wish to round. This number can be entered directly into the command, or from another location such as a spreadsheet or a global numerical variable.

Direction

The second parameter chooses the direction of rounding. There are five options:

  • Nearest
  • Smaller
  • Larger
  • Down
  • Up

The difference between “Smaller” and “Down” comes when the values are negative:

2.4 down = 2

2.4 smaller = 2

-2.4 down = -3

-2.4 smaller = -2

Decimals

The third parameter is number of decimals to begin the rounding position.


Examples

Example 1

On End Run Logic
SET gblNumber = 123.456
Round Controlled gblNumber , Nearest , 2

The above example will convert 123.456 (from the variable gblNumber) to 123.46

Example 2

On End Run Logic
SET gblNumber = 123.456
Round Controlled gblNumber , Down , 1

The above example will convert 123.456 (from the variable gblNumber) to 123.4

Example 3

On End Run Logic
SET gblNumber = 123.456
Round Controlled gblNumber , Up , 0

The above example will convert 123.456 (from the variable gblNumber) to 124

Example 4

On End Run Logic
SET gblNumber = 123.456
