Let's say we have an array of nubmers


How can we make them round up to

  • 2
    I assume example 3 is a typo. 21,333 rounds to 25,000, should that be 21,500? – barry houdini Mar 2 '12 at 15:23
  • I agree here with @barryhoudini, I don't think the data you have is possible – Raystafarian Mar 2 '12 at 19:39

Excel's ceiling function can do this: If 9333 were in A1, the formula =ceiling(a1,500) would return 9500.


If the numbers are in A1 to A4, place


in B1 and copy this formula down.

This rounds to the nearest 500. Replace 499 by N-1 and 500 by N to round to the nearest N.
