Number.RoundUp

#

In this article, we will explore the M code behind the Number.RoundUp function and its various applications.

Understanding the Syntax of the Number.RoundUp Function

The Number.RoundUp function takes two arguments – the first is the value to be rounded up, and the second is the number of decimal places to round up to. The syntax of the function is as follows:

Number.RoundUp(value as any, optional digits as nullable number) as nullable any

``` Here, the argument 'value' can be any numeric expression in Power Query, while the argument 'digits' is an optional argument that specifies the number of decimal places to round up to. If the 'digits' argument is not specified, the function defaults to round up to the nearest whole number. How the Number.RoundUp Function Works The Number.RoundUp function rounds up a given numeric value to the specified number of decimal places. To understand how the function works, let's take an example. Suppose we have a numeric value of 1.2345, and we want to round it up to two decimal places. We can do this by using the Number.RoundUp function as follows: ```

Number.RoundUp(1.2345, 2)

``` The function will return the value 1.24, which is the result of rounding up 1.2345 to two decimal places. Applications of the Number.RoundUp Function The Number.RoundUp function can be used in many scenarios where rounding up numeric values is necessary. Some of the common applications of this function are: Financial Calculations In financial calculations, precision is of utmost importance. The Number.RoundUp function can be used to round up the results of financial calculations to a specified number of decimal places. For example, suppose we have a financial calculation that results in a value of 1.2345. To ensure that the result is rounded up to two decimal places, we can use the Number.RoundUp function as follows: ```

Number.RoundUp(financial_calculation_result, 2)

``` This will ensure that the result is rounded up to two decimal places, providing the required precision for financial calculations. Data Analysis In data analysis, it is often necessary to round up numeric values to a specified number of decimal places. This can be done using the Number.RoundUp function. For example, suppose we have a dataset containing numeric values with multiple decimal places. To round up these values to two decimal places, we can use the Number.RoundUp function as follows: ```

Number.RoundUp(dataset_column, 2)

``` This will round up all the values in the dataset column to two decimal places, providing a clean and consistent dataset for analysis. Mathematical Calculations In mathematical calculations, rounding up numeric values is often necessary to ensure that the results are accurate and precise. The Number.RoundUp function can be used for this purpose. For example, suppose we have a mathematical calculation that results in a value of 1.2345. To ensure that the result is rounded up to two decimal places, we can use the Number.RoundUp function as follows: ```

Number.RoundUp(mathematical_calculation_result, 2)

``` This will ensure that the result is rounded up to two decimal places, providing the required precision for mathematical calculations. The Number.RoundUp function is a powerful tool in Power Query that can be used to round up numeric values to a specified number of decimal places. This function has many applications, such as financial calculations, data analysis, and mathematical calculations. By understanding the M code behind the function and its syntax, we can utilize it to its full potential and ensure precision in our work.
