Ceiling(value as Double) As Double

New in 2020r1

Supported for all project types and targets.


result = Ceiling(value)

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


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

Sample Code

This code uses the Ceiling function to return ceiling of a number.

Var d As Double
d = Ceiling(1.234) // returns 2

Because Ceiling 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 Ceiling of that number and divide it by 10^(the number of decimal places to which you wish to round). In this code, the value 1.2345 is being rounded to two decimal places:

Var d As Double
d = Ceiling(1.234 * 100) / 100
