SuperCeiling ( 4567 , 10 )

4570

Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

(Updated Nov 28 - 2012):

Sometimes you need to calculate the closest thousand or hundred of a number, specially when you are working with items billable by the thousand (like paper).

Basically this CF divides the number by RoundTo, takes the fractionary part and rounds it up using the Ceiling() function and the adds it to the integer part and multiply it by RoundTo again.

I get a "Specified Parameter Could Not Be Found" error, highlighting "Number" - what does that refer to? | ||

You have to add the parameter in the upper side of the dialog. Type "Number" and click the + icon. | ||

Works great!, found this after doing it the hard way....:) Let([ hund=Right(Round(Service::odometer;0);3); rnd=Case( hund > 500;0; hund = 500;-500; hund ≥ 1 ; 500; 0) ]; Round(Service::odometer;-3)+rnd ) |

Hi Steve, thank you for your comments. By the way, it helped me to notice that it was spelled wrongly and I have just fixed it. the calculation remains the same, it was just how it shows on this website. Thanks! |

If you want to make the result Round UP or Down, here is a MOD to your CF: RoundUpDnByUnit ( Number , RoundTo ) Let ( [ a = Number; b= RoundTo; Num = a / b ; Integ = Int ( Num ) ; Frac = Num - Integ; c = ( Integ + Ceiling ( Frac ) ) * b; d = If(a ≥ (c - (b / 2)); c; c - b) ] ; d ) Thanks! Don |
