Considerations when using the ROUNDUP function

ROUNDUP behaves like ROUND, except that it always rounds a number up.

  • If num_digits is greater than 0 (zero), then the number is rounded up to the specified number of decimal places.
  • If num_digits is 0, then the number is rounded up to the nearest integer.
  • If num_digits is less than 0, then the number is rounded up to the left of the decimal point.
