4 Easy Ways to Roundup a Formula Result in Excel

To demonstrate the approaches, we are considering a dataset of 10 employees of an organization, their salaries, and tax payment. The names of the employees are in column B, their salaries are in column C, and the amount of tax payment is in column D. The tax pay rate is in cell F5. So, we can say our dataset is in the range of cells B5:D14. We are using the SUM function to sum the total amount of tax in cell D15. For adding up the tax payment, write down the following formula into cell D15.

=SUM(D5:D14)


1. Applying ROUND Function

In this method, we are going to use the ROUND function to round up a formula result. The formula result is the outcome of the SUM function. The steps of this process are given below:

📌 Steps:

  • First of all, select cell D16.
  • Now, write down the following formula into cell D16.

=ROUND(D15,2)

Here, 2 is the number of digits up to which we want to round.
