Hi All
As in the description... it doesn't matter what the actual result would be in the cell how do I get excel to recognize if it is more than half way to the next thousand in this case to roundup?

If I understand you correctly, you do *not* want to round down numbers ending in 001 ... 499, but you *do* want to round up numbers ending in 500 ... 999.
So 12345 > 12345 but 12789 > 13000.
With the original numbers in A1, A2 and down, you could use the following formula in B1, and fill down:
=IF(MOD(A1,1000)<500,A1,CEILING(A1,1000))

Thanks to both of you for answers,
Hans, your understanding is correct as to the rounding portion of my question. The formula will work in a column as stated, however the situation I have is that the value in the "specific" cell changes the cell referenced does not change. If A1 is the cell and only the value changes and i put your formula into B1 is there a "wild card" character that I can use at the first 1000 you show to represent that no mater what the value is check and see if it is greater than 1/2 the way to the next whole 1000 number, then round up if not leave it reporting A1. Does this make any sense??
Thanks,
cvbs

Sorry, What I am trying to say is that the value in cell A1 will be constantly changing. What formula modification would I need to make in cell B1 to show roundup or remain as is.

Unless you turned off automatic calculation, the values in column B will automatically reflect the changes in column A.
