I am trying to understand if its possible to use the FLOOR or CEILING functions to round numbers to a specific multiple of significance ? Like in Microsoft Excel...

**Rounds number down, toward zero, to the nearest multiple of significance.**

Syntax

FLOOR(number,significance)

Number is the numeric value you want to round.

Significance is the multiple to which you want to round.

Remarks

If either argument is non numeric, FLOOR returns the #VALUE! error value.

If number and significance have different signs, FLOOR returns the #NUM! error value.

Regardless of the sign of number, a value is rounded down when adjusted away from zero. If number is an exact multiple of significance, no rounding occurs.

Example :

Formula Description (Result)

=FLOOR(2.5, 1) Rounds 2.5 down to nearest multiple of 1 (2)

=FLOOR(-2.5, -2) Rounds -2.5 down to nearest multiple of -2 (-2)

=FLOOR(-2.5, 2) Returns an error, because -2.5 and 2 have different signs (#NUM!)

=FLOOR(1.5, 0.1) Rounds 1.5 down to the nearest multiple of 0.1 (1.5)

=FLOOR(0.234, 0.01) Rounds 0.234 down to the nearest multiple of 0.01 (0.23)

Can this be achieved or I will have to code a formula myself ?

Thank you.
