Multiply one cell by a factor and make that result round
I am trying to multiply A7 by B7, I then want that result to round to the
nearest 0.05. This is what I have and it wont work.Or maybe it cant be done? =(A7*2.66),Ceiling(B7,0.05) This formula is in cell B7 Is it possible? Any help greatful

It sounds like you want this:
=ceiling(a7*b7,.05) I'm not sure where 2.66 comes from. I would think that this formula would not go in B7you'll end up with a circular reference problem if you use it this way.

Have your tried mround()
=MROUND(A7*2.66,0.05) "Machel_C" wrote in message ... I am trying to multiply A7 by B7, I then want that result to round to the nearest 0.05. This is what I have and it wont work.Or maybe it cant be done? =(A7*2.66),Ceiling(B7,0.05) This formula is in cell B7 Is it possible? Any help greatful

Whoops, forgot to pass the infomation Celing() rounds up, not to the
nearest. "Steve R" wrote in message ... Have your tried mround() =MROUND(A7*2.66,0.05) "Machel_C" wrote in message ...

Steve, Ceiling rounds to the nearest multiple that you specify,ie. 0.05.

Dave, the 2.66 is the multiplying factor I want to use. Here is what I have.
On one sheet I have costing for multiple products. On a second sheet I have our multiplying factor to use for our costing. Lets say product A costs us $2.50 to buy and our selling price is 2.66% markup. I want our markup percentage to multiply by our cost and round to the nearest nickel for our pricebooks. I dont want to have to create a 3rd sheet to do this. "Dave Peterson" wrote: It sounds like you want this: =ceiling(a7*b7,.05) I'm not sure where 2.66 comes from.

maybe...

From Help:
Ceiling() Returns number rounded up, away from zero, to the nearest multiple of significance. Mround() Returns a number rounded to the desired multiple. Steve "Machel_C" wrote in message ...
