After years of using Excel, I realized today I have never had to round up to the nearest whole number before – until today that is. I was organizing my finances and realized that I wanted to round some of the amounts up to the nearest 10. So to round to the nearest decimal place in Excel, the formula is:
Count the number of places after the 0 to round to and set [Position] to that value
So if you had 1234.25 in Cell A1 and wanted to round up to the nearest cent, =ROUNDUP(A1, 1) would produce 1234.30.
Want to go the other way? Simply start at the decimal as 0 and count backwards in the negated position.
|=ROUNDUP(A1, -1)||=ROUNDUP(A1, -2)||=ROUNDUP(A1, -3)||=ROUNDUP(A1, -4)|
To round to the nearest ten (10)
To round to the nearest hundred (100)
To round to the nearest thousand (100)
