This function returns a number rounded to the desired multiple.

Syntax

MROUND(number,multiple)

Arguments

This function has these arguments:

Argument

Description

number

Numeric value to round

multiple

Numeric value representing the rounded result

Remarks

This function rounds to the nearest multiple (either up or down). For even numbers where there may be two choices (one rounding up and one rounding down), the result is the number farther from zero. For example, MROUND(18,4) returns 20 even though 16 is as near since 20 is farther from zero. For MROUND(-18,-4) returns -20 since that value is farther from zero.

Data Types

Accepts numeric data for both arguments. Returns numeric data.
