Computes the largest integer that is not more than the input value. Input can be an Integer, a Decimal, a column reference, or an expression. 

Basic Usage

Numeric literal example:

derive type:single value: FLOOR(2.5)

Output: Generates a column with each row's value 2.

Expression example:

derive type:single value: FLOOR(MyValue + 2.5)

Output: Generates a column containing the largest integer that is less than the sum of 2.5 and the value in the MyValue column.

Syntax

derive type:single value: FLOOR(numeric_value)

ArgumentRequired?Data TypeDescription
numeric_valueYstring, decimal, or integerName of column or Decimal or Integer literal to apply to the function

For more information on syntax standards, see Language Documentation Syntax Notes.

Examples

Example - Exponential functions

The following example demonstrates how the rounding functions work together. These functions include the following:

  • FLOOR - largest integer that is not greater than the input value. See FLOOR Function.
  • CEILING - smallest integer that is not less than the input value. See CEILING Function.
  • ROUND - nearest integer to the input value. See ROUND Function.
  • MOD - remainder integer when input1 is divided by input2. See Numeric Operators
