Discussion

%RND rounds a numeric expression to the nearest whole number.

%RND follows normal rounding rules: fractional values less than .5 are rounded down, while fractional values of .5 and above are always rounded up. The result does not contain any fractional precision.

The difference between %RND and %ROUND is that with implied‑decimal arguments, %RND returns a result with no fractional precision, and %ROUND returns a result with the same fractional precision as expression.

Examples

The following example returns a value of 35.
