Method

Floor(value as Double) As Double

Supported for all project types and targets.

Returns the value specified rounded down to the nearest whole number.


Syntax

result = Floor (value)

Part Type Description
result Double The floor of value.
value Double The value you want the floor of.

Notes

The result of this function is a Double, but it will always contain a whole number.

Examples

This example uses the Floor function to return floor of a number.

Dim d as Double
d=Floor(1.234) //returns 1


Because Floor will always return a whole number, to round a decimal value to a certain number of places, you must first multiple the number by 10^(the number of decimal places to which you wish to round) then take the value returned by Floor of that number and divide it by 10^(the number of decimal places to which you wish to round). In this example, the value 1.2345 is being rounded to two decimal places:

Dim d as Double
d=Floor(1.234*100)/100
