```If you really mean roundup, then

=ROUNDUP(A1,-1)-A1

however if you mean Round, then

=ROUND(A1,-1)-A1

The difference is that ROUNDP will return 9 if A1 contains 101, Round will
return -1

```If you want the answer to appear in the same cell then you need to include
the original equation within your new equation.

For example my solution to having 107 in A4, with the answer 3 appearing
would be to put the formula

However if you want 3 to appear in cell A4 (where your original formula is),
should be

=10-MOD(SUM(A1:A3),10)

```Fiona,

That actually returns 10 if A1 contains 110, where I would read that the OP
wants 0 in this case.

Show format in formula bar
Hello: On some spreadsheets I have #'s in the billions added together in cells. Sometimes it is difficult to verify the number is 10,000,000,000 because it shows up as 10000000000. My eyes get crossed counting the zeros. I'd love if the formula bar would show 10,000,000,000; however, can't seem to find a way to do this. Is this possible?

Formula Completion Feature
A useful enhancement for Excel would be a formula completion feature like the one in Delphi. You just type an equal sign, and a list of valid labels, names and functions pops up below the cell. There should be different colors for the text telling what the word on that line is, i.e., label, name or function. As you type, all the entries not matching the text you have typed should disappear. One could move up and down the list by the up and down arrow keys. To accept an entry one could just type a comma (if you have completed a function argument), Enter (if choosing a label, name or func...

WHAT DOES THE SYMBOL"\$" REPRESENT IN A EXCEL FORMULA?

Without the the \$ symbol, a formula such as =A1+B1 in cell C1 would be changed to =A2+C2 if it was copied into cell C2, whilst this is useful if you're creating a table of information, it can some times be a pain. By changing the original formula to =\$A\$1+\$B\$1, it will not change when copied. The above example keeps it en...
