• Returns the multiple of y which is nearest to x.

You may notice small discrepancies when you use this function with 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.

• Calculates the Present Value of a future payment. Rate is the discount rate for one time period. Nskip is the number of time periods before the payment occurs. Amt is the amount of the payment.

• Calculates the Present Value of a series of future payments. Rate is the discount rate for one time period. Nskip is the number of time periods before the first payment occurs. Amt is the amount of each payment. Npay is the number of payments in the series, spaced one time period apart.

• This function returns d if d is not null. If it is null, it returns a 0-length duration instead. An undefined or empty field is "null." Null values don't work in calculations, which is where the Nz() function comes in handy. When Nz() finds a null, it sees it as a zero. So, if you want to perform calculations on a field that may include a null, use the Nz function.
