## Examples

Use MROUND ( number, SIGN ( number ) * multiple ) if the the sign of the number is not known in advance:

```DifferenceYOY RoundedToThousands :=
VAR Difference = [DifferenceYOY]
VAR Multiple = 1000
RETURN
MROUND ( Difference, SIGN ( Difference ) * multiple )
```
```--  Rounding functions, using multiples of the second argument
--
--  FLOOR returns the smaller multiple
--  MROUND returns the nearer multiple (does not work with negative values)
--  CEILING returns the larger multiple
--  ISO.CEILING is like CEILING, handles differently negative numbers
