    nearest 1000

    I have a formula and want the cell to round up to the nearest 1000. For example, Cell A1 + B7 - if the number is 2694 I want it to round to 3000. Any ideas? Thanks

    Try this:

    <pre>=ROUND(ValueOrCellToRound,-3)</pre>

    Close but it rounds down. I need it to round up instead of nearest 1000. Sorry for the mixup. any ideas?

    The following will round a value in A1 to the nearest 1000

    =MROUND(A1,1000)

    Changing the 1000 to 100 rounds to the nearest 100 etc

    Regards,

    ok, just rounding up is:

    <pre>=ROUNDUP(ValueOrCellToRound,-3)</pre>

    Sorry but did not see your revised requirement

    If you start Excel Help, Index, and enter "rounding numbers" (lower case) and doubleclick it, you'll find Excel has all kinds of rounding capabilities.
