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.


  • 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.
