    Role up

    The sentence is 'Role up all cost reduction numbers on a quarterly basis'. Is it a phrasal verb or is it a mistake and they mean 'roll up'?

    It looks like a mistake, the verb is 'to roll up'.

    Roll up all cost reduction numbers on a quarterly basis.

    What does roll up mean?
    The same thing as the following?
    roll sthup to close sth by turning a handle: She rolled up all the windows.
