#### The ROUNDUP Function

****The **ROUNDUP** function in Excel is designed to round numbers up to a specified number of digits. It takes two arguments:

- The number you want to round up.
- The number of digits you want to round to.

**Syntax:**

=ROUNDUP(number, num_digits)

#### Examples:

**1. Rounding Up to the Nearest Whole Number:**

- Formula:
**=ROUNDUP(12.5, 0)** - Result: The formula returns the value
**13**.

**2. Rounding Up to the Nearest 10:**

- Formula:
**=ROUNDUP(12.5, 1)** - Result: The formula returns the value
**20**.

**3. Rounding Up to the Nearest 100:**

- Formula:
**=ROUNDUP(12.5, 2)** - Result: The formula returns the value
**100**.

#### Notes:

- The
**ROUNDUP**function rounds up to the nearest specified digit. - If you want to round up to the nearest 10, 100, or 1000, adjust the
**num_digits**parameter accordingly (e.g.,**1**for 10,**2**for 100, and**3**for 1000). - Ensure that the
**num_digits**parameter is a negative integer if you want to round to the left of the decimal point.

#### Additional Tip:

- If you want a more dynamic rounding option, you can use a cell reference instead of a static number in the
**ROUNDUP**function. For example,**=ROUNDUP(A1, 0)**would round up the number in cell A1 to the nearest whole number.

By incorporating the **ROUNDUP** function into your Excel formulas, you can easily round numbers up based on your specific requirements.
