Sample Usage





TRUNC(value, [places])

  • value - The value to be truncated.

  • places - [ OPTIONAL - 0 by default ] - The number of significant digits retained to the right of the decimal point.

    • If places is greater than the number of significant digits in value, the value is unchanged.

    • If places is negative, all digits to the right of the decimal place are discarded, and the specified number of digits to the left of the decimal place are changed to zero. If the result of TRUNC is zero, TRUNC will display 0.
