In this Excel tutorial, you will learn how to round to the nearest 1000 in Excel.

Rounding to the nearest 1000 in Excel can be done using Excel functions **ROUND**, **ROUNDUP**, **ROUNDOWN**, **CEILING**, **CEILING.MATH**, **FLOOR**, **FLOOR.MATH**, **MROUND**; using Excel **Power Query** and combining Excel **SIGN**, **ABS** and **MROUND** functions.

*Note:** We have used the Microsoft 365 version in this article. But all of these methods shown here except the FLOOR.MATH and CEILING.MATH functions and the Power Query feature are applicable to any Excel version.*

*The*

**FLOOR.MATH**and**CEILING.MATH**functions are available in Excel 2013 and later versions.*The*

**Power Query**feature is available in Excel 2010 and later versions.Rounding to the nearest 1000 is useful to simplify data presentation or calculations. Especially, when you’re dealing with large numbers or big financial figures, it is better you convert numbers to the nearest 1000; it makes the data more manageable and easier to understand. It also eliminates unnecessary detail or decimal places when such precision is not required.

## What Is Rounding to Nearest 1000?

Rounding to the nearest 1000 means that we want to adjust a number to the closest multiple of 1000. For example, if you have a number 4850, and you want to round it to the nearest 1000, the result will be 5000, as 5000 is the nearest thousandth multiple of 4850.

In mathematics, there are 2 rules for rounding off a number to the nearest 1000.

**Rule 1:** When you want to round a number to the nearest 1000, and if the hundredth place digit of the number is less than 5, then the hundredth, tenth, and oneth places are replaced by 0. Like rounding off 25345 results 25000.

**Rule 2:** To round a number to the nearest 1000, and if the hundreds place digit of the number is greater than or equal to 5, then the hundredth, tenth, and oneth places are replaced by 0 and the thousands place is increased by 1. Like rounding off 25645 results 26000.

## 1. Using Excel ROUND Function to Round Numbers to Nearest 1000

In this part, you will learn how to use the Excel **ROUND** function to round numbers to the nearest 1000.

The **ROUND** function round numbers to the nearest 1000 based on general math rules. If the hundreds place digit of a number is less than 5, then the hundreds place is replaced by 0. If the hundreds place digit of a number is greater than or equal to 5, then the hundreds place is replaced by 0 and the thousands place is increased by 1.

### Case 1: Rounding Numbers Down to Nearest 1000 Using FLOOR Function

In this part, you will learn how to use Excel **FLOOR** function to round down numbers to the nearest 1000. Excel **FLOOR** function rounds down both the positive and negative numbers when the **significance** argument is positive.

*Note: Both the number and significance arguments of the FLOOR function should have the same sign in Excel 2003 and 2007 versions. Otherwise, the FLOOR function will give an error. The FLOOR function in newer versions of Excel can handle negative numbers and positive significance.*

Here, I’ll use the same dataset and will use **the FLOOR function** to round the numbers down to the nearest 1000.

**Follow these steps:**

**Step 1:**

`=MROUND(B5,-1000)`

**Step 5:** Click on the **Enter** button on your keyboard and you will find the following output. Hover your mouse over the bottom right corner of cell **C14**, you will find the **Fill Handle** icon (**Green Plus**).

**Step 6:** Double-click on the **Fill Handle** icon to round all the negative numbers to the nearest 1000 across the cells **C14:C19**.

## 9. Combining Excel SIGN, ABS and MROUND Functions

In this part, you will learn how to combine Excel **SIGN**, **ABS** and **MROUND** functions to round numbers to the nearest 1000.

The combination of these 3 functions solves the problem of Excel **MROUND** function that cannot work when there is a positive number with a negative **multiple** argument and when there is a negative number with a positive **multiple** argument.

Here, I’ll use the same dataset as before and will combine the **SIGN**, **ABS** and** MROUND **functions to round the numbers to the nearest 1000.

**Follow these steps:**

**Step 1:**

In cell **C5**, I want to round the number to the nearest 1000. So, I input this formula in the cell **C5**:

`=SIGN(B5)*MROUND(ABS(B5),ABS(1000))`

**Step 2:** Click on the **Enter** button on your keyboard and you will find the following output. Hover your mouse over the bottom right corner of cell **C5**, you will find the **Fill Handle** icon (**Green Plus**).

**Step 3:** Double-click on the **Fill Handle** icon to round all the numbers to the nearest 1000 across the cells **C5:C17**.

**Formula Breakdown:**

Let’s explain how this formula works:

=SIGN(B5)*MROUND(**ABS(B5)**,**ABS(1000)**)

=SIGN(B5)*MROUND(**25645**,**1000**) // ABS(B5) returns 25645 and ABS(1000) returns 1000 as the absolute value.

=SIGN(B5)***MROUND(25645,1000)**

=**SIGN(B5)*****26000** // MROUND(25645,1000) returns 26000 because this function rounds the value 25645 to the nearest 1000.

=**1***26000 // SIGN(B5) returns 1 because the number in cell B5 is positive.

=26000 // Because the multiplication result is 26000.

## 10. Using Custom Number Format to Display Numbers Rounded to Nearest 1000

In this part, you will learn how to use Excel **Custom **Number Format to display numbers rounded to the nearest 1000. Applying the **Custom **Number Format won’t change the original cell value. It just displays the original value as rounded to the nearest 1000.

Here, I’ll use the same dataset. First, I’ll copy the original values and paste them into another column. Then, I’ll use the **Custom **Number Format option to display the numbers rounded to the nearest 1000.

**Follow these steps:**

**Step 1: Copy and Pasting the original values**

Select cells **B5:B17** => Press **Ctrl** + **C** to copy => Select cell **C5** => Press **Ctrl** + **V** to paste.

**Step 2: Opening Format Cells dialog box**

You can also put **#0,”K”** in the **Type:** box in the **Format Cells** dialog box of **Step 4**.

Click **OK** and you’ll get the following output.

You can also open the **Format Cells** dialog box in these three ways:

**First way:**

Select cells **C5:C17** and **Right-click** => The **Context** menu will open => You’ll get the **Format Cells** option.

**Second way:**

Select cells **C5:C17** => Go to **Home** tab => **Cells** group of commands => Click on the **Format** drop-down => You’ll get the **Format Cells** option.

**Third way: Keyboard Shortcut to open the Format Cells dialog box:**

Select cells **C5:C17** => Press the keyboard shortcut **Ctrl** + **1** and you will get the following result.

How can we roundUp to first decimal in cell formatting itself (without using formulae)?

E.g

1. If I write 44.41 it show 44.5

2. If I write 44.45 it shows 44.5

3. If I write 44.49 it show 44.5

Hello ISH SHARMA!

You can increase and decrease decimal digits from the format options. But Through this, it will round to the nearest decimal. Suppose, when you round the value 44.41, it will be rounded to 44.4, not 44.5 and for the value 44.45, it will become 44.5.

To use this method,

>> Select the cell.

>> Go to the

Hometab in the top ribbon.>> Here, in the

Numbermenu, click on the “Increase Decimal” icon to increase the decimal digits after the point, and click on the “Decrease Decimal” to decrease the decimal digits.I hope, your problem will be solved in this way. You can share more problems in an email at
