Excel round to nearest 10000 (5 Easiest Ways)

Copy down the formula using Round up to B11

Rounding is necessary when we deal with numbers. In Excel, we can easily round numbers to any specific value using different functions. In this article, I will show how to round numbers to the nearest 10000 in Excel.

5 ways to round to the nearest 10000 in Excel

1. Using ROUND Function

For showing this method let’s consider a dataset of some numbers. Now using the ROUND function, we will find out the number up to the nearest 10000.

Using ROUND Function

Before going to the example let’s talk about the ROUND Function first. The syntax of the function is like this:

ROUND (number, num_digits)

In the first portion, it takes the number which you want to round. For this, we will need to pass the cell number of that number.

Then in the second portion, it takes the number digit, meaning up to the number of digits to which number should be rounded. There are three possible ways to declare rounding behavior. They are:

>0 (Positive Numbers) Round to nearest .1, .01, .001, .0001 etc.
<0 (Negative Numbers) Round to nearest 10, 100, 1000, 10000, etc.
=0  Round to nearest 1.

Step 1: Enter the formula in cell B5.

=ROUND(A5,-4)

Formula Breakdown

In this formula, firstly I have initially passed the desired cell number where the number is located which is A5. Then as we want to round nearest to 10000 that’s why in the second portion, it is -4.

Enter the formula using Round function in cell B5

Step 2: Copy down the numbers up to B11.

2. Using ROUNDUP Function

Another rounding function is ROUNDUP. We can round any number using this function. Now I will show how to round numbers using the ROUNDUP function for the previous example used in method 1. First, see the function details. The syntax of this function is like this:

ROUNDUP (number, num_digits)

This is like the ROUND function. First, we need to pass the number which we want to round then the number of digits to which number should be rounded up.

[ Note it will find out the highest possible round number from the current position. ]

Step 1: Enter the number in cell B5.

=ROUNDUP(A5,-4)

Using ROUNDUP Function

Step 2: Copy down the formula up to B11.

 Copy down the formula up to B11

3. Using ROUNDDOWN Function

Like the above two methods, we can do the same thing using the ROUNDDOWN function. Here I will show how to round numbers using this function. The syntax of the function is like this:

ROUNDDOWN(number, num_digits)

Here firstly we will pass the number you want to round down and then pass the positive numbers, negative numbers, or 0 depending on the number of digits to which you want to round the number

[ Note it will find out the lowest possible round number from the current position. ]

Step 1: Enter the formula in cell B5.

=ROUNDDOWN(A5,-4)

Enter the formula using ROUNDDOWN function in cell B5

Step 2: Copy down the formula up to B11.

4. Using CEILING and FLOOR Function

Let’s see how to round using the CEILING and FLOOR function in Excel. Basically, it is the alternative of the above two functions which are ROUNDUP and ROUNDDOWN functions. First, let’s look at the functions.

For CEILING Function

The syntax of the CEILING function is like this:

CEILING (number, significance)

This is the same as the previous ROUNDUP function. It also takes the desired number which will be rounded first and then the significance value. But it will round the highest possible round value as much as it can.

Step 1: Enter the formula in cell B15.

=CEILING(A15,10000)

Formula Breakdown

In this function firstly, I have passed the cell number (A15) where our number is located. Then as we want to round to the nearest 10000, that’s why I have passed 10000 in the second portion. This will round up to the nearest highest 10000 as much as can.

Enter the formula using ceiling function

Step 2: Copy down the formula up to B21.

Copy down the formula up to B21

For FLOOR Function

The syntax of the FLOOR function is like this:

FLOOR (number, significance)

This is the basic structure of this function. In the first portion, it takes the number which is going to be rounded. Then the second portion contains the multiple to which you want to round. But it will round the lowest possible round value as much as it can.

Step 1: Enter the formula using the FLOOR function in cell B5.

=FLOOR(A5,10000)

Formula Breakdown

In this function firstly, I have passed the cell number (A5) where our number is located. Then as we want to round to the nearest 10000, that’s why I have passed 10000 in the second portion. This will round up to the nearest lowest 10000 as much as can.

 Enter the formula using FLOOR function in cell B5

Step 2: Copy down the formula up to B11.

Copy down the formula up to B11

5. Using MROUND Function

Lastly, let’s see how to round numbers using the nearest multiple. For this, we will use another Excel build-in function which is MROUND. And also, let’s consider the same example above.

First look at the function definitions. The syntax of the function is like this:

MROUND (number, multiple)

The first portion carries the value you want to round and the second portion is the multiple values which you want to round the number.

Step 1: Enter the formula in cell B5.

=MROUND(A5,10000)

Formula Breakdown

As with the previous functions, firstly the number we want to round is in the A5 cell. Then the multiple value is 10000 as we want to find out the round to the nearest 10000.

Sample content

Enter the formula using MROUND function in cell B5

Step 2: Copy down the formula up to B11.

Copy down the formula up to B11

Conclusion

These are the ways to round numbers to the nearest 10000 in Excel. I have shown all the methods with their respective examples. Also, I have discussed the fundamentals of this function and the most commonly used format codes of this function. If you have any other method of achieving this then please feel free to share it with us.
