Fix the Broken Math Functions on SQL Sheets
DAP-37807

The following functions are now supported and follow the SQL spec:

  • MOD()/% Only accepts exact values (E.g., Decimal or Integer.) It doesn't support inexact floating point values. A cast must be used to go from double to decimal if MOD() is used. The resulting type is the type of the denominator.
  • CEIL()/FLOOR() Accepts all numeric types. Decimal and Integer arguments result in an Integer result value. Double arguments result in a Double result value.
  • ROUND() Accepts all numeric types and an optional integer precision parameter. The result type is the same as the argument type.
  • SIGN() Accepts all numeric types. The result type is the same as the argument type.
  • TRUNCATE() Accepts all numeric types. The result type is the same as the argument type.
  • ROUND() function has added support for setting the precision like ROUNDUP() and ROUNDDOWN() functions.
