    Increase number to next whole number (excel 2003)

    Is it possible to increase an answer from a formula to the next whole number? For example, I have a formula that will calculate an estimate ...answer could be 1875...I want a formula to increase it to 1900.

    Any ideas?

    You can use the CEILING function for this. Say you have a formula =SUM(A2:A10) whose result you want to round up to the nearest multiple of 100. You'd change the formula to

    =CEILING(SUM(A2:A10),100)

    Alternatively, you can use the ROUNDUP function:

    =ROUNDUP(SUM(A2:A10),-2)

    The -2 means -2 decimal places, which is interpreted as multiples of 100 (-3 would mean multiples of 1000 etc.)
