floating point

Syndicate content

QuickBase users may notice small discrepancies when rounding and comparing floating point numbers. For example, Round(37.785,0.01) returns 37.78 instead of 37.79. This is not a QuickBase-specific issue; the discrepancies happen because some floating point numbers cannot be represented exactly in the binary format required by computers and are instead approximated.
