Round Up




I would like to round up the number and only keep to the nearest thousand for formatting purposes.

For example,


19599 should be 20000

33801 should be 34000

62499 should be 63000

1100   should be 2000

78999 should be 79000

all the number should be round up to thousand formatting.


I found there is function called round, but in Alteryx, this one is only for the nearest, not always round up.

Could anyone offer some ideas?


Thank you.

Spoke too soon, my logic was incorrect. Will rework.



Unless am missing something couldnt you use:


CEIL([Field1] / 1000) * 1000
