MROUND

In This Topic

This function returns a number rounded to the desired multiple.

MROUND(*number*,*multiple*)

This function has these arguments:

Argument | Description |
---|---|

number |
Numeric value to round |

multiple |
Numeric value representing the rounded result |

This function rounds to the nearest multiple (either up or down). For even numbers where there may be two choices (one rounding up and one rounding down), the result is the number farther from zero. For example, MROUND(18,4) returns 20 even though 16 is as near since 20 is farther from zero. For MROUND(-18,-4) returns -20 since that value is farther from zero.

Accepts numeric data for both arguments. Returns numeric data.
