## How to Convert Decimal to Whole Number in Excel: 10 Easy Ways

There are so many simple and effective ways to convert decimal to whole number in Excel. I am going to explain 10 of them in the following section.

### 1. Apply ROUND Function

The ROUND Function is one of the ways to convert decimal to whole number in Excel. The Round function rounds a number up or down, depending on the specified number of digits and whether the number is positive or negative. If the number is positive, the Round function rounds the number down. If the number is negative, the Round function rounds the number up.

Steps:

• Pick a cell and input the following formula.
`=ROUND(E5,0)`

• Now, press the ENTER button to have the number in the whole form.

The INT function rounds a number down to the nearest whole number. If the number is already an integer, the INT function doesn’t change it.

Steps:

• Firstly, select a cell and input the following formula.
`=INT(E5)`

• Press ENTER.

• AutoFill the remaining cells.

### 3. Use TRUNC Function

The TRUNC function in Excel is a mathematical function that returns a truncated number. This function is useful for removing decimal places from a number.

Steps:

• Select cell B5 and write the following formula.
`=TRUNC(E5,0)`

• Hit ENTER to have the whole number.

• Apply the above formula in the remaining cells using the Fill Handle.

### 4. Apply MROUND Function

The MROUND function in Excel returns a number rounded to a specified number of decimal places. This function is typically used to round numbers to a specified number of significant figures.

Steps:

• Apply the formula written below to the selected cell.
`=MROUND(E5,1)`

• Now, press the ENTER button to have the number in the whole form.

• Use Fill Handle to AutoFill the rests.

### 5. Use FLOOR Function

The FLOOR function in Excel is a function that returns the smallest integer value that is less than or equal to a given number. It is useful for finding the next lowest whole number when dealing with decimal values. The floor function can be used on its own or as part of a larger formula.

Steps:

• Pick a cell and input the following formula.
`=FLOOR(E5,1)`

• To have the result, press ENTER.

• For the remaining cells, use AutoFill.

### 6. Use CEILING Function

The CEILING function in Excel is a function that returns a number rounded up to the nearest integer multiple of a specified value.

Steps:

• Select a cell and write the following formula.
`=CEILING(E5,1)`

• Press ENTER to have the output.

• AutoFill the rests.

### 7. Apply Decrease Decimal Command

We can also use the decrease decimal command from the ribbon under the Home tab.

Steps:

• Select all the cells containing numbers first.
• Go to Home.
• From the Number group, click on the decrease decimal command based on your decimal numbers.

We can have the converted numbers on the cells.

### 8. Utilize Built-in Number Format

There is also a built-in format to convert the decimal number into the whole form. Just follow the following steps.

Steps:

• First of all, select the cells.
• Go to the HomeÂ tab.
• From the Number Format drop-down, select More Number Formatsâ€¦Â option.

A wizard named Format Cells will appear.

• Go to Number from Category.
• Write 0 in Decimal places.
• Then, click on OK.

We can see the converted decimal numbers on screen.

### 9. Apply EVEN Function

The EVEN function is a function that produces an output that is always an even number for any input value. It considers the higher value of the number.

Steps:

• Firstly, select a cell and input the following formula.
`=EVEN(E5)`

• Hit ENTER to have the whole number.

• AutoFill the rest cells.

### 10. Use ODD Function

The ODD function converts the number into an odd number but not the lower one. It always converts into the upper odd number.

Steps:

• Pick a cell and input the following formula.
`=ODD(E5)`

• To have the result, press ENTER.
