# ROUNDUP function

Rounds a number up, away from 0 (zero).

## Syntax

ROUNDUP(number,num_digits)

Number     is any real number that you want rounded up.

Num_digits     is the number of digits to which you want to round the number.

## 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.
