Returns number rounded up to the nearest odd integer.

Syntax

ODD ( number )

Number is the value to round.

Remarks

  • If number is nonnumeric, ODD returns the #VALUE! error value.

  • Regardless of the sign of number, a value is rounded up when adjusted away from zero. If number is an odd integer, no rounding occurs.
