Round - script and chart function

Round() returns the result of rounding x up or down to the nearest multiple of step [+ offset]. The default value of offset is 0. The default value of step is 1.

If x is exactly in the middle of an interval, it is rounded upwards.


Round(x[, step[, offset]])

Return data type: numeric

Note: If you are rounding a floating point number you may experience results that are erroneous. These mostly insignificant rounding errors are due to that floating point numbers are represented by a finite number of binary digits. That results in QlikView calculating with a number that is already rounded. If it is critical to have correct rounding, a workaround is to multiply the numbers to convert them to integers.

Examples and results:
