    Rounding Up (2000)

    How can I round a number to the nearest number dividable by 3 ?
    e.g
    If number is 7, I need it to equal 9
    10 to equal 12
    19 to equal 21 etc etc

    Re: Rounding Up (2000)

    Say that your number is in A1. Use this formula:

    =CEILING(A1,3)

    CEILING rounds the first argument up to the nearest multiple of the second argument.

    Note for others reading this: the equivalent function for rounding down to the nearest multiple of a number is FLOOR.
