    This function returns a number rounded to the desired 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.
