Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-1874:
-----------------------------------------

"The number returned is a multiple of 10^Digits."

That is incorrect.  Although it is awkward, perhaps the best way to put this is that

"The number returned is an exact integer multiple of 10^-Digits."

That is, when Digits = 3, the number returned is an exact integer multiple of .001

When Digits = -3, the number returned is an exact integer multiple of 1000.

> According to the description
> If Digits is positive, round to the specified number of decimal places. If Digits is negative, round to the left of the decimal point by -Digits places.
> So
> =ROUNDUP(1.45673; -2)
> should round to he left of the decimal point and yield 100.
> Similarly
> =ROUNDUP(9;1)
> should be 9 but this seems to be inconsistent with:
> The number returned is the smallest number that is not less than X and is a multiple of 10^Digits.
> Tha sentence should probably be:
> The number returned is the smallest number that is not less than X and is a multiple of 10^-Digits.
