Hello experts,

In column K, I need a formula that will round the numbers in Column H (# of skids) up to the nearest whole number. Even if the number is 1.001 it should be rounded up, not down, and appear as "2".

Thanks

Use the RoundUp() function:

In your example spreadsheet, put in column K, row 2:
=RoundUp(H2,0)

Then use the Fill Down function to populate the rest of your rows.  The ',0' tells it to round to the next whole number.  There are other options(listed in my above link) that will let you round up to specific decimal places.
