CEILING

The CEILING function rounds a number up to the nearest integer multiple of specified significance.

Sample Usage

CEILING(23.25,0.1)

Syntax

CEILING(value, [factor])

  • value - The value to round up to the nearest integer multiple of factor.

  • factor - [OPTIONAL: 1 by default] - The number to whose multiples value will be rounded.

    • factor may not be equal to 0.

Notes

  • When value is positive, factor must also be positive.

  • When value is negative, factor can be either negative or positive to determine which direction to round.
