Ceil ( value as Double ) As Double

Returns the value specified rounded up to the nearest whole number.


Syntax

Part Type Description
result Double The ceiling of value.
value Double The value you want the ceiling of.

Notes

The result of this function is a Double, but it will always contain a whole number.


Examples

This example uses the Ceil function to return ceiling of a number.

Dim d as Double
d=Ceil(1.234) //returns 2


Because Ceil will always return a whole number, to round a decimal value to a certain number of places, you must first multiple the number by 10^(the number of decimal places to which you wish to round) then take the value returned by Ceil of that number and divide it by 10^(the number of decimal places to which you wish to round). In this example, the value 1.2345 is being rounded to two decimal places:

Dim d as Double
d=Ceil(1.234*100)/100
