SELECT [westclintech].[wct].[CEILING] (
is the value to be round up, away from zero. @Number is an expression of type float or of a type that can be implicitly converted to float.
is the multiple to which you want to round. @Significance is an expression of type float or of a type that can be implicitly converted to float.
· The sign of @Number and @Significance must be the same
