# ROUND() to tens or hundreds (not tenth/hundredths)!

I need to round to a value in the ROUND() function. WHen rounding to 0
decimals I sometimes see \$14,483.00 but I'd like to round to, say, \$14,400 or
\$14,950 or even \$14,500.00 or even \$15,000.00. \$19,560 might go to \$19,995
or \$19,950 or even \$20,000.
How do I do this to ROUND based upon a specific value or 'near' value? I'm
looking for some guidance here without just 'entering' the specific value
into a cell. The ROUND may round up or round down.
TIA

You have not really pinned down with any consistency how you want your
rounding to go. Give one of these a try and see if it meets your needs...

=ROUND(A19,-1)

=ROUND(A19,-2)

Hi,

There are some pretty strange roundings you are asking for, but

for 14,483 --> 14,400 use
=ROUNDDOWN(A1,-2)
for 14,483 --> 14,950 use (very strange, not at all clear on what you
actually trying to do
=ROUNDUP(A1,-3)-50 or
=FLOOR(D13,50)+500
for 14,483 --> 14,500
=ROUND(A1,-2)
for 14,483 --> 15,000
=ROUNDUP(A1,-3)
19,560 --> 20,000
=ROUNDUP(A1,-3)
for 19,560 --> 19,995 Im not sure what you want, this is an extremely
strange rounding. But you could use
=ROUND(A1,-3)-5
and 19,560 --> 19,950 another strange one
=ROUND(D10,-3)-50
