Rounding Differences in Power BI

Marco Russo explains the importance of data types for rounding in Power BI:

In one of the last classrooms I delivered, students were wondering why the results of their formulas were close but not identical to the proposed solution. We quickly identified the problem being an issue of data type conversion already covered inĀ Understanding numeric data type conversions in DAX. However, the issue is interesting as a simpler example to show that different DAX calculations can produce different results because of a different way of rounding numbers!

Read on for Marco’s example.
