Abstract
Abstract
CEILING rounds a number up to the nearest multiple of significance.
Syntax
CEILING(
number
,
increment
,
mode
)
number
is the number that is to be rounded.
increment
is the number to whose multiple the value is to be rounded.
mode
is an optional value. If the
mode
value is given and not equal to zero, and if
number
and
increment
are negative, rounding is done based on the absolute value of
number
. This mode argument is ignored when exporting to Microsoft Excel because it does not use a third parameter.
Important:
If both
number
and
increment
are negative and the
mode
value is equal to zero or is not given, the results in IBM Docs and Microsoft Excel differ after the import is complete. If you export the spreadsheet to Excel, use mode=1 to see the same results in Excel as in IBM Docs.
Example
=CEILING(11,2)
returns
10
.
=CEILING(11,2,0)
returns
10
.
=CEILING(11,2,1)
returns
12
.
