Formula Help... IF with rounding to nearest quarter

Hi All,

Have a sheet with labor hours. Previously, anything that was <1 would get rounded up to 1 and anything over would be actual number...
Then, we changed to just go with actual numbers all around. Easy enough, just change formula to have labor hours field times whatever the rate is (A2*78).

Now, we want to see about not rounding up to 1, but to the nearest quarter...
0.01-0.25 = 0.25 ; 0.26-0.50 = 0.50 ; 0.51-0.75 = 0.75 ; 0.75-1.00 = 1.00

So, getting error too many arguments. Must be missing another AND or OR? Basically, anything that says "Remote Diagnostics" has a $25 rate and everything else has $78 rate.
I think the main formula is good, but not when I add in the "Remote Diagnostic" secction.
Main: = IF(AND(J3>=0,J3<=0.25),0.25*78,IF(AND(J3>0.25,J3<=0.5),0.5*78,IF(AND(J3>0.5,J3<=0.75),0.75*78,IF(AND(J3>0.75,J3<=1),1*78,J3*78)))))

Adjusted: = IF(AND(G3="Remote Diagnostics",J3>=0,J3<=0.25),0.25*25,IF(AND(J3>0.25,J3<=0.5),0.5*25,IF(AND(J3>0.5,J3<=0.75),0.75*25,IF(AND(J3>0.75,J3<=1),1*25,J3*25,IF(AND(J3>=0,J3<=0.25),0.25*78,IF(AND(J3>0.25,J3<=0.5),0.5*78,IF(AND(J3>0.5,J3<=0.75),0.75*78,IF(AND(J3>0.75,J3<=1),1*78,J3*78)))))

Hi,

Why would 0 (zero) get rounded up?
Doesn't 0 indicate No Labor Hours or Work performed?
Correct, but we "assume" it was entry error, which happens quite often with our technicians.
If something is zero, we round up so we can include. I don't necessarily agree with that procedure, but I have to follow it.
 

Excel Facts

Whats the difference between CONCAT and CONCATENATE?
The newer CONCAT function can reference a range of cells. =CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,A4,A5) becomes =CONCAT(A1:A5)

Ok,

You can add this bit to @Tetra201 formula:

=IF(J3<1,MAX(0.25,CEILING(J3,0.25)),J3)*IF(G3="Remote Diagnostics",25,78)

BTW, are you guys hiring? :LOL:
