if you just want to change how the number is displayed try something like formats myvar (f4). if you want to show no places or formats myvar(f6.3). to show 3 places etc.

if you want to have a variable with an actual change to the contents try something like compute newvar0 = rnd(oldvar). to round to an integer. or compute newvar2 = rnd(100*oldvar)/100. to have 2 places after the decimal.
