Here’s an overview of the different ways you can round numbers to the nearest 1,000. Let’s dig into each option.

## Method 1 – Using Excel ROUND Function to Round Numbers to Nearest 1000

The **ROUND** function round numbers to the nearest 1,000 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.

Let’s use a dataset with some random numbers. There are both positive and negative integers and decimal numbers in the dataset. I want to round the numbers to the nearest 1,000.

**Steps:**

- Copy this formula in cell
**C5**:

`=ROUND(B5,-3)`

- Hit
**Enter**button and you will find the following output. Hover your mouse over the bottom right corner of cell**C5**toÂ find the**Fill Handle**icon (**Plus**).

- Double-click on the
**Fill Handle**icon to round all the numbers to the nearest 1,000 across cells**C5:C17**.

## Method 4 – Using Excel CEILING Function to Round Numbers to Nearest 1000

### Case 1 – Rounding Numbers Up to Nearest 1000 Using CEILING Function

**Steps:**

- Copy this formula in cell
**C5**:

`=CEILING(B5,1000)`

- Hit
**Enter.**

- Double-click on the
**Fill Handle**icon (bottom-right corner of C5) to round all the numbers up to the nearest 1,000 across the range**C5:C17**.

### Case 2 – Rounding Numbers Down to Nearest 1000 Using CEILING Function

Excel’s **CEILING** function rounds down only negative numbers when the **significance** argument is negative. When the number is positive and the **significance** argument is negative, Excel **CEILING** function returns a **#NUM!** error.

**Steps:**

- Copy this formula in cell
**C5**:

`=CEILING(B5,-1000)`

- Hit
**Enter.**

- Double-click on the
**Fill Handle**icon (bottom-right corner of C5) to round only the negative numbers down to the nearest 1,000 across cells**C5:C17**.

## Method 5 – Using Excel CEILING.MATH Function to Round Numbers Up to Nearest 1000

Weâ€™ll use the following dataset and will use **the CEILING.MATH function** with positive **significance** argument and negative **significance** argument in separate columns to round the numbers up to the nearest 1,000.

**Steps:**

- Copy this formula in cell
**C5**:

`=CEILING.MATH(B5,1000)`

- Hit
**Enter.**

- Double-click on the
**Fill Handle**icon (bottom-right corner of cell C5) to round all the numbers up to the nearest 1,000 across cells**C5:C17**.

- Copy this formula in cell
**D5**:

`=CEILING.MATH(B5,-1000)`

- Hit
**Enter**.

- Double-click on the
**Fill Handle**icon.

## Method 6 – Using Excel FLOOR Function to Round Numbers to Nearest 1000

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

The **FLOOR** function rounds down both the positive and negative numbers when the **significance** argument is positive.

**Steps:**

- Copy this formula in cell
**C5**:

`=FLOOR(B5,1000)`

- Hit
**Enter.**

- Double-click on the
**Fill Handle**icon (bottom-right corner of cell C5).

### Case 2 – Rounding Numbers Up to Nearest 1000 Using FLOOR Function

Excel **FLOOR** function rounds up only negative numbers when the **significance** argument is negative. When the number is positive and the **significance** argument is negative, Excel **FLOOR** function returns a **#NUM!** error.

**Steps:**

- Copy the following formula in cell
**C5**:

`=FLOOR(B5,-1000)`

- Press
**Enter.**

- Double-click on the
**Fill Handle**icon (bottom-right corner of cell C5).

## Method 7 – Using Excel FLOOR.MATH Function to Round Numbers Down to Nearest 1000

The **FLOOR.MATH** function rounds down both the positive and negative numbers. Weâ€™ll use the following dataset and will use the **FLOOR.MATH **function with positive **significance** argument and negative **significance** argument in separate columns to round the numbers down to the nearest 1000.

**Steps:**

- Copy the following formula in cell
**C5**:

`=FLOOR.MATH(B5,1000)`

- Press
**Enter.**

- Double-click on the
**Fill Handle**icon (bottom-right corner of C5) to copy the formula throughout the column.

- Input this formula in cell
**D5**:

`=FLOOR.MATH(B5,-1000)`

- Hit
**Enter.**

- Double-click on the
**Fill Handle**icon for D5.

## Method 8 – Using Excel MROUND Function

The **MROUND** function rounds numbers based on general math rules like Excel **ROUND** function, but both the **number** and **multiple** arguments of the **MROUND** function should have the same sign. Weâ€™ll use the following dataset and use the** MROUND **function for the positive and negative numbers separately to round them to the nearest 1000.

**Steps:**

- Insert this formula in
**C5**:

`=MROUND(B5,1000)`

- Hit
**Enter.**

- Double-click on the
**Fill Handle**icon (bottom-right corner of C5).

- Input this formula in
**C14**:

`=MROUND(B5,-1000)`

- PressÂ
**EnterÂ**and hover over the bottom-right corner of the cell.

- Double-click on the
**Fill Handle**icon.

## Method 9 – Combining Excel SIGN, ABS and MROUND Functions

**Steps:**

- Copy this formula into cell
**C5**:

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

- Hit
**Enter**and hover over the bottom right corner of cell**C5 to find the**Â**Fill Handle**icon.

- Double-click on the
**Fill Handle**icon to copy the formula to the other cells in the column.

**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.

## Method 11 – Using Custom Number Format to Display Numbers Rounded to Nearest 1000

Let’s copy the original values and paste them into another column, then use the **Custom **Number Format option to display the numbers rounded to the nearest 1,000.

**Steps:**

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
