Here’s an overview of the different ways you can round numbers to the nearest 1,000. Let’s dig into each option.

## Method 1 – Using Excel ROUND Function to Round Numbers to Nearest 1000

The **ROUND** function round numbers to the nearest 1,000 based on general math rules. If the hundreds place digit of a number is less than 5, then the hundreds place is replaced by 0. If the hundreds place digit of a number is greater than or equal to 5, then the hundreds place is replaced by 0 and the thousands place is increased by 1.

Let’s use a dataset with some random numbers. There are both positive and negative integers and decimal numbers in the dataset. I want to round the numbers to the nearest 1,000.

**Steps:**

- Copy this formula in cell
**C5**:

`=ROUND(B5,-3)`

- Hit
**Enter**button and you will find the following output. Hover your mouse over the bottom right corner of cell**C5**tofind the**Fill Handle**icon (**Plus**).

- Double-click on the
**Fill Handle**icon to round all the numbers to the nearest 1,000 across cells**C5:C17**.

**Fill Handle**icon (bottom-right corner of C5) to round all the numbers up to the nearest 1,000 across the range**C5:C17**.

### Case 2 – Rounding Numbers Down to Nearest 1000 Using CEILING Function

Excel’s **CEILING** function rounds down only negative numbers when the **significance** argument is negative. When the number is positive and the **significance** argument is negative, Excel **CEILING** function returns a **#NUM!** error.

**Steps:**

- Copy this formula in cell
**C5**:

`=CEILING(B5,-1000)`

- Hit
**Enter.**

- Double-click on the
**Fill Handle**icon (bottom-right corner of C5) to round only the negative numbers down to the nearest 1,000 across cells**C5:C17**.

## Method 5 – Using Excel CEILING.MATH Function to Round Numbers Up to Nearest 1000

We’ll use the following dataset and will use the CEILING.MATH function with positive **significance** argument and negative **significance** argument in separate columns to round the numbers up to the nearest 1,000.

**Steps:**

- Copy this formula in cell
**C5**:

`=CEILING.MATH(B5,1000)`

- Hit
**Enter.**

- Double-click on the
**Fill Handle**icon (bottom-right corner of cell C5) to round all the numbers up to the nearest 1,000 across cells**C5:C17**.

- Copy this formula in cell
**D5**:

`=CEILING.MATH(B5,-1000)`

- Hit
**Enter**.

- Double-click on the
**Fill Handle**icon.

## Method 6 – Using Excel FLOOR Function to Round Numbers to Nearest 1000

### Case 1 – Rounding Numbers Down to Nearest 1000 Using FLOOR Function

The **FLOOR** function rounds down both the positive and negative numbers when the **significance** argument is positive.

**Steps:**

- Copy this formula in cell
**C5**:

`=FLOOR(B5,1000)`

- Hit
**Enter.**

- Double-click on the
**Fill Handle**icon (bottom-right corner of cell C5).

### Case 2 – Rounding Numbers Up to Nearest 1000 Using FLOOR Function

Excel **FLOOR** function rounds up only negative numbers when the **significance** argument is negative. When the number is positive and the **significance** argument is negative, Excel **FLOOR** function returns a **#NUM!** error.

**Steps:**

- Copy the following formula in cell
**C5**:

`=FLOOR(B5,-1000)`

- Press
**Enter.**

- Double-click on the
**Fill Handle**icon (bottom-right corner of cell C5).

## Method 7 – Using Excel FLOOR.MATH Function to Round Numbers Down to Nearest 1000

The **FLOOR.MATH** function rounds down both the positive and negative numbers. We’ll use the following dataset and will use the **FLOOR.MATH **function with positive **significance** argument and negative **significance** argument in separate columns to round the numbers down to the nearest 1000.

**Steps:**

- Copy the following formula in cell
**C5**:

`=FLOOR.MATH(B5,1000)`

- Press
**Enter.**

- Double-click on the
**Fill Handle**icon (bottom-right corner of C5) to copy the formula throughout the column.

- Input this formula in cell
**D5**:

`=FLOOR.MATH(B5,-1000)`

- Hit
**Enter.**

- Double-click on the
**Fill Handle**icon for D5.

## Method 8 – Using Excel MROUND Function

The **MROUND** function rounds numbers based on general math rules like Excel **ROUND** function, but both the **number** and **multiple** arguments of the **MROUND** function should have the same sign. We’ll use the following dataset and use the MROUND function for the positive and negative numbers separately to round them to the nearest 1000.

**Steps:**

- Insert this formula in
**C5**:

`=MROUND(B5,1000)`

- Hit
**Enter.**

- Double-click on the
**Fill Handle**icon (bottom-right corner of C5).

- Input this formula in
**C14**:

`=MROUND(B5,-1000)`

- Press
**Enter**and hover over the bottom-right corner of the cell.

- Double-click on the
**Fill Handle**icon.

## Method 9 – Combining Excel SIGN, ABS and MROUND Functions

**Steps:**

- Copy this formula into cell
**C5**:

`=SIGN(B5)*MROUND(ABS(B5),ABS(1000))`

- Hit
**Enter**and hover over the bottom right corner of cell**C5 to find the****Fill Handle**icon.

- Double-click on the
**Fill Handle**icon to copy the formula to the other cells in the column.

**Formula Breakdown:**

Let’s explain how this formula works:

=SIGN(B5)*MROUND(**ABS(B5)**,**ABS(1000)**)

=SIGN(B5)*MROUND(**25645**,**1000**) // ABS(B5) returns 25645 and ABS(1000) returns 1000 as the absolute value.

=SIGN(B5)***MROUND(25645,1000)**

=**SIGN(B5)*****26000** // MROUND(25645,1000) returns 26000 because this function rounds the value 25645 to the nearest 1000.

=**1***26000 // SIGN(B5) returns 1 because the number in cell B5 is positive.

=26000 // Because the multiplication result is 26000.

## Method 11 – Using Custom Number Format to Display Numbers Rounded to Nearest 1000

Let’s copy the original values and paste them into another column, then use the **Custom **Number Format option to display the numbers rounded to the nearest 1,000.
