In this post we will be covering new FLOOR function, which produces results with utter precision. Through FLOOR.PRECISE function you can evaluate  accurate floor values. The syntax of FLOOR.PRECISE function is exactly same as FLOOR function, requires two arguments to be passed for final evaluation.

In function arguments, B2 is the location of the cell for which we are finding out floor value and 1 is specified multiple. It will yield 0 as for 0.765, the closet whole number is 0.


Drag the plus sign at the end of the cell towards the end of column to apply function over the whole field.
