Syntax

ROUNDUP(number,num_digits)

Number     is any real number that you want rounded up.

Remarks

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

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

  • If num_digits is 0, then number is rounded up to the nearest integer.

  • If num_digits is less than 0, then number is rounded up to the left of the decimal point.
