ROUNDDOWN(number,num_digits)

Number     is any real number that you want rounded down.

• If num_digits is greater than 0 (zero), then number is rounded down to the specified number of decimal places.

• If num_digits is 0, then number is rounded down to the nearest integer.

• If num_digits is less than 0, then number is rounded down to the left of the decimal point.
