EVEN Function (DAX)

Owen Duncan|Last Updated: 5/22/2018

Returns number rounded up to the nearest even integer. You can use this function for processing items that come in twos. For example, a packing crate accepts rows of one or two items. The crate is full when the number of items, rounded up to the nearest two, matches the crate's capacity.

Syntax

EVEN(number)  

Parameters

TermDefinition
numberThe value to round.

Return Value

Remarks

If number is nonnumeric, EVEN returns the #VALUE! error value.
