If you don’t want to display decimal values in Excel, you can simplify your numeric data with the ROUND functions. Excel provides three functions: ROUND, ROUNDUP, and ROUNDDOWN. Let’s see how they work.

Using the ROUND functions in Excel is different from changing the format of numbers. When you change the way numbers are formatted, you only change how the workbook looks. When you change numbers with the ROUND functions, you change the look and store it.

The ROUND function rounds the number to a specified number of decimal places. It rounds a number down if the digit in the next decimal place to the right is between 0 and 4, and it rounds up if that digit is five to nine. And as you might expect, the ROUNDUP function always rounds down, and the ROUNDDOWN function always rounds down.

The ROUND function in Excel rounds a number to a specified number of digits. The ROUND function rounds up or down. 1, 2, 3, and 4 are rounded down. 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 are rounded up.
