Truncate decimals but not round
I want to truncate the decimals from a number like below but do not want to round it.
2.22939393 -> 2.229
2.22977777 -> 2.229
2.59999 -> 2.5 instead of 2.6
Seems that would always be a round down.
Can you use the ROUND function?: ROUND(Line Item, [decimal places], DOWN]0
If you do not want to round then your only other option is text cutting.
You can do LEFT(TEXT(number line item),5)
You can have an IF statement to not always take the 5 first (2.229) but the first three (2.5), depending on a numeric condition.1
Hi, Thanks for your reply but Round down will not work as it will round 3.4562 to 3.0 instead of 3.4. I want a way to truncate the number till the first decimal0
truncate isn't the right word, you want to round down to a specific decimals. In which case Jared anser's is correct, round allows you to do that
