# FIXED

Rounds a number to the specified number of decimals and returns the result as text. You can specify that the result be returned with or without commas.

## Syntax

```
FIXED(<number>, <decimals>, <no_commas>)
```

### Parameters

Term | Definition |
---|---|

number | The number you want to round and convert to text, or a column containing a number. |

decimals | (optional) The number of digits to the right of the decimal point; if omitted, 2. |

no_commas | (optional) A logical value: if 1, do not display commas in the returned text; if 0 or omitted, display commas in the returned text. |

## Return value

A number represented as text.

## Remarks

If the value used for the

**decimals**parameter is negative,**number**is rounded to the left of the decimal point.If you omit

**decimals**, it is assumed to be 2.If

**no_commas**is 0 or is omitted, then the returned text includes commas as usual.The major difference between formatting a cell containing a number by using a command and formatting a number directly with the FIXED function is that FIXED converts its result to text. A number formatted with a command from the formatting menu is still a number.

This function is not supported for use in DirectQuery mode when used in calculated columns or row-level security (RLS) rules.

## Example

The following example gets the numeric value for the current row in column, PctCost, and returns it as text with 4 decimal places and no commas.

```
= FIXED([PctCost],3,1)
```

Numbers can never have more than 15 significant digits, but decimals can be as large as 127.
