### How to Roundup a Formula Result in Excel

To round a formula result in Excel, refer to the cell address of the result in the first argument of Roundup() function.

For example, if you have in cell A1 the result 125.71 from a formula, you can round up the result in cell B1 to the nearest integer with this formula:

=ROUNDUP(A1, 0)

Alternatively, you can also put the formula in the first argument in lieu of A1 in this example.

### Excel Roundup Not Working

If ROUNDUP() function is not working as expected, check that the cells are treated as numbers by Excel.

Note that text is default to align left. If the numbers are aligning to the left with a green triangle, select those cells. You will then see a small asterisk warning. Click on the warning, it should say “Number stored as text”.

Select the “Convert to number” option to convert them all to numbers.
