Get FREE Advanced Excel Exercises with Solutions!

If the numbers of your dataset have decimals, you may want to remove them to make the dataset look simple. Removing decimals is quite easy; you can do it in Excel in multiple ways. In this article, I’ll show you 13 ways to remove decimals in Excel. Consider the following dataset, here we have the conversation of different amounts of different currencies into USD. Now we will remove the decimals from the Total USD column. ## 1. Using INT Function to Remove Decimals in Excel

The INT function rounds the number down to the nearest integer. So, we can get the integer part of a number that has no decimal points by applying the INT function.

Steps:

• Firstly, type the following formula to an empty cell (F5).
`=INT(E5)`
• Then, press Enter and you’ll get the number without decimals.
• After that, apply the same formula in all other cells, just drag the cell F5. • Thus, you can remove decimals using the INT function. Here, the INT function returns the integer parts of the numbers of Column E in Column F.

## 2. Removing Decimals with Excel TRUNC Function

The TRUNC function simply truncates the decimal part of a number and returns the integer part.

Steps:

• In the beginning, to apply this function for removing decimals type the following formula in Cell F5.
`=TRUNC(E5)`
• Now, press Enter and drag down the Fill Handle tool to copy the formula for the rest of the cells. • Thus, you can remove decimals using the TRUNC function. Here, the function truncates the decimal part of the number in Cell E5 and will return the integer part in Cell F5.

## 3. Applying ROUND Function to Eliminate Decimals in Excel

The ROUND function rounds the number to a given number of digits. To remove the decimal completely, we need to put 0 as the given number of digits. If the decimal part is bigger than 0.5 it will round up the number and if the decimal part is smaller or equal to 0.5, it will round down the number.

Steps:

`=ROUND(E5,0)`
• Press ENTER to get the number without decimals.
• Here, the decimal part was .80 (bigger than .5) so it rounded up the value.
• Lastly, drag the Cell F5, to get the number without decimals for all other cells. • Finally, we will get all the rounded numbers. In the formula, the function rounds the number of Cell F5 without any decimals and will give the value in Cell F5.

## 4. Remove Decimals Using Excel ROUNDDOWN Function

The ROUNDDOWN function rounds downs the number down to a given number of digits. If we give 0 as the given number, the function will remove the decimal part from the number.

Steps:

• Firstly, type the following formula to an empty cell F5.
`=ROUNDDOWN(E5,0)`
• Then, press Enter and you’ll get the number without decimals.
• After that, apply the same formula in all other cells, just drag the cell F5. • Finally, we will get all the rounded numbers. Here, the ROUNDDOWN function rounds down the number of Cell E5. 0 indicates that there will be no decimal parts.

## 5. Applying ROUNDUP Function to Remove Decimals in Excel

The ROUNDUP function will round the number up to a given number of digits. If we give 0 as the given number, the function will remove the decimal part from the number.

Steps:

• In the beginning, to apply this function for removing decimals type the following formula in Cell F5.
`=ROUNDUP(E5,0)`
• Now, press Enter and drag down the Fill Handle tool to copy the formula for the rest of the cells. • Thus, you can remove decimals using the ROUNDUP function. The ROUNDUP function rounds up the number of Cell E5. 0 indicates that there will be no decimal parts.

## 6. Using MROUND Function to Delete Decimals from Number

The MROUND function rounds the number to a specified multiple. So, if we select the multiple 1, the function will remove the decimals.

Steps:

`=MROUND(E5,1)`
• After that, press Enter and you will get the round figure of the number without decimals in Cell F5.
• Lastly, drag down Cell F5 to get the value in all other cells. • Finally, we will get all the rounded numbers. Here, the MROUND function rounds the number of Cell E5 to a multiple of 1 in Cell F5.

## 7. Remove Decimal and Round Numbers to the Nearest Odd Number

The ODD function returns the next odd number of the selected number. So, we can remove decimals by using the ODD function.

Steps:

• In the beginning, to apply this function for removing decimals type the following formula in Cell F5.
`=ODD(E5)`
• Now, press Enter and drag down the Fill Handle tool to copy the formula for the rest of the cells. • Thus, all the numbers will be rounded to the nearest odd number removing decimals. In the formula, the function returns the next odd number of the number of Cell E5.

## 8. Rounding Number to the Nearest Even Number and Removing Decimals

The EVEN function returns the next even number of the selected number. So, we can remove decimals by using the EVEN function.

Steps:

• Type the formula in Cell F5.
`=EVEN(E5)`
• Then, press Enter and you’ll get the number without decimals.
• After that, apply the same formula in all other cells, just drag the Cell F5. • Thus, all the numbers will be rounded to the nearest even number removing decimals. Here, the function will return the next even number of the number of Cell E5.

## 9. Using CEILING Function to Remove Decimals in Excel

The CEILING function rounds a number up to the nearest multiple of significance. So, if we give 1 as the significance, the function will remove the decimals from the number.

Steps:

• Firstly, type the following formula into an empty Cell F5.
`=CEILING(E5,1)`
• Secondly, press Enter and you’ll get the number without decimals.
• After that, apply the same formula in all other cells, just drag Cell F5. • Thus, you can remove decimals using the CEILING function. In the formula, the CEILING function will round up the number of Cell E5 to a multiple of 1.

## 10. Applying Excel CEILING.MATH Function to Remove Decimals

The CEILING.MATH function automatically sets the significance as 1. So, we don’t need to define the significance to remove the decimals in the CEILING.MATH function.

Steps:

• In the beginning, to apply this function for removing decimals type the following formula in Cell F5.
`=CEILING.MATH(E5)`
• Now, press Enter and drag down the Fill Handle tool to copy the formula for the rest of the cells. • Thus, you can remove decimals using CEILING.MATH function. The formula rounds up the number to the next integer. As a result, the decimals are removed.

## 11. Removing Decimals Using the FLOOR Function in Excel

The FLOOR function rounds a number down to the nearest multiple of significance. So, if we give 1 as the significance, the function will remove the decimals from the number.

Steps:

• Firstly, type the following formula into an empty Cell F5.
`=FLOOR(E5,1)`
• Then, press Enter and you’ll get the number without decimals.
• After that, apply the same formula in all other cells, just drag the Cell F5. • Finally, we will get all the rounded numbers. Here, the FLOOR function rounds down the number of Cell D5 to a multiple of 1.

## 12. Using FLOOR.MATH Function to Delete Decimals in Excel

The FLOOR.MATH function automatically sets the significance as 1. So, we don’t need to define the significance to remove the decimals in the FLOOR.MATH function.

Steps:

`=FLOOR.MATH(E5)`
• After that, press Enter and you will get the round figure of the number without decimals in Cell F5.
• Lastly, drag down Cell F5 to get the value in all other cells. • Now, you will get all the numbers without decimals. The FLOOR function rounds down the number to the previous integer. As a result, the decimals are removed.

## 13. Applying Excel Format Cells Option to Remove Decimals

In the last method, we will show you how you can remove decimals by formatting Cells in Excel. You can do it using the ribbon or right-clicking on the cell and then opening the Format Cells box.

Steps:

• Firstly, select the cells from where you want to remove decimals.
• After that, you just need to go to the Home tab and keep clicking on the Decrease Decimals sign until the decimals are completely removed. • However, you can also use the format cells tool to remove decimals.
• Next, select the cell from where you want to remove decimals and right-click.
• Now, a drop-down menu will appear, from there select Format Cells. • Then, the Format Cells box will appear.
• Here, go to the Number tab, enter 0 in the Decimals places box, and click on OK. • Finally, you can see all the decimals from your selected cells are removed. ## What is ExcelDemy?
