yes, that just rounds to specified # of digits.. but roundup and rounddown does more (away or toward)?

select ROUNDUP (111,40)
select ROUNDDOWN (111,40)

Try CEILING and FLOOR though they don't handle digits.
To round up to three digits, you may try e.g. CEILING (numeric_expression * 1000) / 1000
As "poor man's ceiling" you may use ROUND(numeric_expression + 0.4999999) with an appropriate number of nines. ROUND (numeric_expression + 0.5) will round one higher if you have an integer value to start with.

Surrano, with your example how would you convert
ROUNDUP(1.3,0.2)
with
ROUND or CEILING?

It depends what you mean by ROUNDUP(1.3, 0.2) since ROUNDUP (in SQL Server 2012) has an integer for second parameter: 2 = 2 digits to the right of the decimal separator, -2 = 2 digits to the left. i.e.
ROUNDUP (123.456, 2) = 123.46
ROUNDUP (123.456, -2) = 200

If you mean round up to two fractional digits (i.e. to 1.30 but it doesn't make sense in this example):

ceiling (1.3*100)/100

If you mean round up to the nearest integer multiple of 0.2 (i.e. to 1.4):

ceiling (1.3/0.2)*0.2

Otherwise, please provide more examples with the desired result so that your interpretation of ROUNDUP is unambiguous. E.g. what should be the result of the following calls?

ROUNDUP (1234.5678, 0.2)
ROUNDUP (1234.5678, 0.3)
ROUNDUP (-1234.5678, 0.2)
ROUNDUP (-1234.5678, 0.3)
ROUNDUP (1234.5678, -0.2)
ROUNDUP (1234.5678, -0.3)
ROUNDUP (-1234.5678, -0.2)
ROUNDUP (-1234.5678, -0.3)

Surrano,
according to http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee634948.aspx
ROUNDUP(PI(),4) = 3.1416
ROUNDUP(1.3,0.2) = 1.4
ROUNDUP(13.25,-1) =20


is ROUNDUP working in your instance?

To briefly answer your question: roundup is not valid syntax in 2014.  The KB you posted a link to a DAX function, which if I am not mistaken, would be applicable to SSAS.  You would indeed need to get creative with round and/or ceiling.
