Default ROUNDING ISSUE

Hi all,

How do I ask Excel to stop "rounding"?

I know Round up and down functions however I want excel to stop "rounding" and do not take into account the decimals.

Example:
whether the result is $1,375.35 or $1,375.85 I want excel ignore the decimals and to show $1,375 and not "round" to $1,375 or $1,376.

Thank you for all you help.

Best,

Check out the INT() function.

I think INT() will still round the result. Try TRUNC() this will truncate the number, it also has an optional arguement to set how many decimal places to keep.

INT may produce undesired results for negative numbers:
int(-1375.35) = -1376
