    How do i round up to the nearest 2nd decimal place?

    Asked by wyong on November 29, 2016 at 09:51 PM

    Hi there,


    I need to do some rounding up of numbers to the nearest 2nd decimal place.

    Example $2.51111111 will round up to $2.52.

    I've tried using the CEIL function but it round up to the nearest whole number.

    Are you performing calculation inside of your form and you want to round your calculation to 2 decimal places?

    To achieve this you need to set your calculation field to show 2 decimal places in result. 

    This will round up to closest number. For example 2.51111111 will be rounded to 2.51.

    Ceil math function will always round numbers to whole number.

    Is far as I know it is not possible to round them up to nearest 2nd decimal place.
