FIXED Function (DAX)

Owen Duncan|Last Updated: 5/22/2018

Rounds a number to the specified number of decimals and returns the result as text. You can specify that the result be returned with or without commas.


FIXED(<number>, <decimals>, <no_commas>)  


numberThe 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.

Property Value/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 DAX function is not supported for use in DirectQuery mode. For more information about limitations in DirectQuery models, see


The following example gets the numeric value for the current row in column, PctCost, and returns it as text with 4 decimal places and no commas.


Numbers can never have more than 15 significant digits, but decimals can be as large as 127.
