Excel EVEN Function

Summary 

The Excel EVEN function returns the next even integer after rounding a given number up. The EVEN function always rounds numbers up (away from zero) so positive numbers become larger and negative numbers become smaller (i.e. more negative).

Purpose 
Round a number up to the next even integer
Return value 
An even integer.
Syntax 
=EVEN (number)
Arguments 
  • number - The number to round up to an even integer.
Usage notes 

The EVEN function always rounds up to the next even integer, skipping odd integers along the way. Note that negative numbers are rounded "up" away from zero, so they actually become more negative.
