Round to next higher integer (e.g. 1.2 to 2)

Hello,
How can I roundoff a decimal to next higher integer?
Example,
I need to roundoff 1.32 to 2.
In existing round function, it would be rounded off to 1 instead of 2.

Welcome to the community, @mandarsathe! You could do it as outlined in the post discussed previously:

Thanks for the prompt response. However this does not solve my problem.
Round function rounds off the decimal to nearest integer. That is 6.2 will be rounded off to 6 and 6.8 will be rounded off to 7.
However I need to roundoff any decimal to next higher integer. That is either 6.2 or 6.8, both should be rounded to 7. How can it be done?

@mandarsathe, if this is the requirement, you could do it as outlined in the image shared below:

In the survey tab of your xlsform:

Hello,
You may just add something like 0.49 before you round. (What about entry 0.0? Do you have negative entry?)

Unfortunately, there is no ceil function available in KoBo/XLSForm.

Thanks a lot. This solves the problem!!!
