Round a Float

I need to round the value of a number that the flow will get from a file property.

What I want is to get this float x.yz and tranform it into x.00 (or an integer).

 

I have tried to use Int() but it seems it doesn't work.

Re: Round a Float

Hi @MLM 

 

Please see the screenshot below:

int.PNG

Expression:

int(first(split(string(variables('ee')),'.')))

This converts the float to string and extracts the part before the decimal and then converts that to int. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Re: Round a Float

This is a ridiculous workaround. Why doesn't MS Flow just have Round functions built-in? I have to instantiate TWO variables and have a five nested function calls? Absolutely absurd.

Re: Round a Float

absolutely agree with this.. i'm dealing with excel datetime columns which already provides an excellent amount of confusion with their serialized time. Seems like the only way to convert it to an understandable datetime for flow, I have to do something similar to this..
having to convert a floating point to a string and then back to int and float is mindbogglingly absurd.

 

The way datatypes are being dealt with is causing so much annoyance and frustrations 😕

Re: Round a Float

Hi @hjaf , And folks visiting this thread now, 

 

A new action named Format Number has been introduced in Power Automate that can be directly used now to format a number (decimals/ currency/ commas etc). You might want to check that out as well. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Re: Round a Float

This not a solution! This only can be good, if you want a trunc function. I don't know how to deal with this.
