Syntax and arguments

Formula syntax

ROUNDUP(number, num_digits)


  • Number: Required, the number that used to round up.
  • Num_digits: Required, the number that determines the place at which number should be rounded up.
    --Num_digits > 0, round number up to the right side of decimal point, such as ROUNDUP(1235.36,1)=1235.4;
    --Num_digits = 0, round number up to the nearest integer, such as ROUNDUP(1235.36,0)=1236;
    --Num_digits < 0, round number up to the left side of decimal point, such as ROUNDUP(1235.36,-1)=1240.
