# Round value upto 8 decimal palces

Hi,

I am trying to round off the value upto its 8 decimal places I tried following functions and getting results against it but it is not as expect it to be

e.g. value 0.00932304

round function=0

ceil=1

floor=0

int=0

what shall I try so that I can get some result other than these?

I am trying it for column.

## Re: Round value upto 8 decimal palces

You might also consider just associating an appropriate display format:

var yourvariable;

format yourvariable f16.8;

run.

will display the value rounded to 8 decimal places and does not require an additional pass through your data to modify the varible(s).

Hello,

Could you post the code you've tried ?

This one works fine:

``````data want;
x=0.009323049;
y=round(x,.00000001);
run;``````

Var_new= round(var, 10**-dp)

ANY SAS Procedure will accept a format and you can permanently associate the format in either a data step or use Proc Datasets to modify the format for existing variables in existing data sets.

Proc Print was just an example of how to use in a procedure.
