How to round number up or down in Excel?
If you have a list of decimal data, and you want to round these numbers down or up and keep one decimal only, how can you quickly solve it? Now this tutorial is talking about the tricks to flexibly round numbers up or down in Excel.
In Excel, you can use the ROUNDUP and ROUNDDOWN formulas to round the numbers up or down.
Select a cell next to the data, and type this formula =ROUNDUP(A2,1) (A2 is the data cell you need to round up), and drag the fill handle to the cells you need. See screenshots:
Then go the another cell and type this formula =ROUNDDOWN(A2,1), and drag fill handle to apply this formula to cells.
In above formulas, 1 indicates keeping one decimal, you can change it as you need, and if you want to round number up or down to whole number, you can use formulas =ROUNDUP(A2,0) or =ROUNDDOWN(A2,0).
