SQL Syntax for rounding up

I've got numbers like 3.32 and 3.87 that I calculate and I would like them to both round up to 4 however what I'm getting is rounding down.

Looking at some other questions that were answered I thought this might pull it off but to no avail?

CAST(ROUND(CAST(C.TRANS_QTY AS decimal(18,2)),0) AS INT) AS ROUNDED_QTY,

This does deliver a '0' decimal but it is not rounding up. i suspect I have the cast and round bits scewing with one another.

Thanks!

What version of SQL SErver. Froim 2008r2 there is the roundup function.
ROUNDUP(C.TRANS_QTY,0) should do it.

You may also need a cast statement with the column being passed.

ROUNDUP(C.TRANS_QTY,0) should do it.

Not in T-SQL.  I suspect you are thinking of DAX functions.
