i have a list of minutes in cells a1-a5 say 123 256 147 158 235 divided by 60 giving a total of 15.3 hours. i want the hours to round up if over the. 5 mark or round down if under .5 how would i get the desired result?

I don't know if there is a setting I'm missing or I'm going mad but when I use the round function in VBA it doesn't round.

I am using Excel 2000. See the example attached.

In the cell A2 I have a value 0.525, cell B2 has a formula "=round(A2,2)" which = 0.53, but cell C2 is assigned via VBA ie Sheet1.Cells(2, 3).Value = Round(Sheet1.Cells(2, 1).Value, 2)

A cell value is calculated via a formula in vba. I want to round the result down to the nearest odd number or down to the nearest even number, depending on conditions in an other cell. The result is already an integer.

rounding the numbers. I am working on a quote in which quantity is arrived by dividing the sell price by Total sell price. The condition is the result (quantity) should always be a whole number, I can achieve that by cell formatting but when the calculation is done using handheld calculator the results are different.

I need the result to be same if using excel or handheld device i.e quantity in whole number.

I need to work out how long the batten has to be so the roof sheets fit evenly, the measurement has to start from 1460mm and go up in increments of 80mm eg 1540mm, 1620mm, 1700mm and so on.

But the number has be closest increment of 80mm over the shed width if this makes sense, the size of the battens for 2400 width shed would be 2420mm but i need this to work out for any width shed not just 2400.

i want a cell to round itself. i have a form i'm filling out, based on a percentage of a dollar amount. when the formula calculates, it only shows the first 2 numbers past the dollar point. however, the cell still "knows" what the number is. I have several of these formulas on a spreadsheet, and the sum of them at the bottom of the page is NOT what would you would get adding up the numbers you see on the page, as it is calculating numbers you can't see.

I am trying to do is have the roundup formula round up the result of a more complex formula BUT do it all inside of the same cell? The formula I have is in cell A1 and currently I have to have the cell that contains the round up formula (in cell A2) and have it reference A1. The complex formula is =((280283.47/798186.89)*(700*20*4)) and the result is -19,664.41 which I want to round up to $20,000. Is there a way to make this all occur in just cell A2 or am I stretching it?

I'm creating a spreadsheet to calculate materials with the following columns Cost/10% of Cost/Customer Cost/Qty/Total cost.

I understand that whilst showing rounded to 2 decimal places excel stores more than this in the cell. which then throws out the Total cost by a few pence.

My research leads me to believe I need to use the ROUND function but I'm unsure which cell to use it or how.

I have this formula which works well, but the 3-len part needs to be dependent on another cells content. Is it possible to have the formula automatically accommodate for this?

Eg

=ROUND(I36-I37,3-LEN(INT(Q16)))

in cell Q16 is a number 0.010 as displayed, and the sum of i36-i37= 0.007

I need the formula to say ok the minimum division size is in multiples of Q16 (0.010) and change the 0.007 to either up or down depending on the calculation.

This works currently, but the figure in Q16 can be 0.1 or 0.00001 etc, and the sum in i36-i37 could be anything also as it is a calculated error figure. I need the formula to be able to adapt automatically to the reference DP in Q16.

Namely the "3-" part in the formula needs to accomodate for the Q16 number format changing.

I have sales figures from each region and need to convert those to percentage. and then when i try to add up those percentage shown on screen in excel, sometimes they will add up to 100.1% or 99.9%. Then i will have to manualy adjust the one that excel didn't round up but larger comparable to other regions in the 2 dp.

When a new employee gets a uniform, after they write their first order, I have to make sure the cost of the unifrom gets deducted from their check. Payroll ends on Sunday every week. I want to use conditional formatting to highlight the cell when it's eligible for deduction/reimbursement. No matter what day they write the order, it won't be eligile until after Sunday. Because the day of the week will vary, what type of formula can I use to highlight the cell? My sale dates are in column "AC" and the reimbursement column is "AF".

Below is my current formula. Right now I have it rounding the results to the nearest .09. I would also like to have it round to the nearest .05 as well.

In other words, to be more exact: I need all numbers that end in 0 or 1 to be rounded down to 9; any numbers that end in 7 or 8 to be rounded up to 9; any numbers that end in 2, 3, or 4 to be rounded up to 5; and 6 to be rounded down to 5. And, of course any numbers ending in 5 or 9 shouldn't change.

I need to round all dates that are between the 2nd and 15th down to the 1st and all dates greater than the 15th to the 1st of the next month. i.e. 1/3/01 -> 1/1/01 1/14/01 -> 1/1/01 1/16/01 -> 2/1/01

I could use either a formula or macro.

I tried using the answers posted, but couldn't get them to work properly. I was able to use those answers, however, and modify them to come up with this:

All cells in this formula are dates in the format dd-mmm-yyyy h:mm (except C1).

The formula works fine only if I type in a date/time like 09-Jun-2007 0:00 in cells A1 or B1. As soon as I revert to an actual date/time eg 09-Jun-2007 9:53, it returns a #VALUE! error.

I am thinking this is either not possible or would be an If Then type formula but way beyond my knowledge.

The reason I want to do this is becaue if my student has a 79.5 avg for instance I would normally round to 80. However if they are off by just .1 (ex 79.4) i still want to give them the 80 and then I decided to make it within .2 (ex. 79.3.)

I want to use the Round Function where i have a list of dates. I want the Round Function to count the number of dates in the list. I tried to use Round(C4:C16,0), but i didn't work.
