Thanks my friend, @NandanHegde-7720

How would you do it without using Data Flows and just in an ADF pipeline?

Thanks

Hey @ewinkiser ,
Sorry to have missed out on this thread!

Yes, as @ShaikMaheer-MSFT mentioned, it is not directly possible in ADF as of today without use of dataflow but we can have a workaround via using mathematical and conditional expressions . thats how we usually do it :
in case if we want to round upto 2 decimal we check whether the 3rd digit value is greater or equal to 5 and then add 0.001 else follow the below logic as is.

Hi @ewinkiser ,

Thank you for posting query in Microsoft Q&A Platform.

In ADF Pipeline round() function is not available. Hence we need to go with below explained work around to achieve same.

Implementation:
If you want to round 123.43467 to two decimal places, you need to multiple 123.43467 with 100(123.43467 *100 = 12343.67), then take only left side part(12343) from 12343.67. And then divide the result (12343) by 100 to get 123.43

Please check below image which has similar logic in expression and got result.
expression used: `@string(div(float(split(string(mul(123.43467,100)),'.')[0]),100))`

If you would like to do round in mapping data flows then round() function is available there.

Hope this will help. Please let us know if any further queries.

Hey @ShaikMaheer-MSFT ,
My guess is there is a slight correct in the above expression.
We also follow the above logic but we check the next digit >=5 and add 1 to the preceding value accordingly.

Because based on above logic, if the input is 123.43667 the output should have been 123.44 but it would still be 123.43.

Hi @@ewinkiser ,

As @NandanHegde-7720 mentioned you can consider checking next digit >=5 and then add 1 to preceding accordingly.
