In a data table, I have a column of room numbers, such as 103, 104, 208, 307, 409, 502, 604, 608. I would like to create a new column of floor for each value such as 1, 2, 2, 4, 5, 6, 6. I am not sure how to use the function option for this task. Can someone help with this?

Looks like your column is a character, so change the formula to:

floor(num(:room) / 100)

Is the first digit the floor, this will work for rooms such as 1202 as well that are on the 12th floor.

you can do the following

floor(room/100);

Sorry I meant that the result would be 1, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 6. Essentially the 1st digits.
