## Excel ODD function

The ODD function rounds a number up to the nearest odd integer.

ODD(number)

#### Arguments

• Number (required): A numeric value that you want to round up to the nearest odd integer.

#### Remarks

1. The #VALUE! error value occurs if “number” is nonnumeric;
2. This function rounds a number away from zero. After rounding, a positive number becomes larger and a negative number becomes smaller;
3. If a number is an odd integer, it remains unchanged.

#### Return Value

It returns an odd integer.

#### Example

In the table below, there is a list of numbers that you want to round up to the nearest odd integers. You can apply the ODD function as follows to get it done.

1. Select a blank cell (here I select cell C6), enter the formula below and press Enter to get the result. Then drag its AutoFill Handle down to the cells where you want to apply this formula.

=ODD(B6)

Notes:

1) You can see in the results:
-- If a number is 0, the ODD function rounds to the positive value +1;
-- For an odd integer, the ODD function returns the same value.
2) In cell C6, you can directly type the numeric value in the formula such as:

=ODD(10.3)
