SQL ROUND() Example

We have the following "Products" table:

Prod_Id ProductName Unit UnitPrice
1 Jarlsberg 1000 g 10.45
2 Mascarpone 1000 g 32.56
3 Gorgonzola 1000 g 15.67

Now we want to display the product name and the price rounded to the nearest integer.
We use the following SELECT statement:

SELECT ProductName, ROUND(UnitPrice,0) 
as UnitPrice FROM Products

The result-set will look like this:

ProductName UnitPrice
Jarlsberg 10
Mascarpone 33
Gorgonzola 16
