Grooming the last digit of a number...

I've been playing around with Ceiling, Floor, and MRound, but I don't think these will work. I have a column full of prices that end in all different digits, because they are the result of formulas. Now, I would like to groom every number to end in the number 9. I.e. if the result comes out to 2.22, I would like to groom that to 2.29. The formulas above use multiples, so I don't think they will work.

I was just wondering if anyone else has needed to groom pricing, and what other formulas may be available to do this.

Thanks

Links? Where??
If Excel says you have links but you can't find them, go to Formulas, Name Manager. Look for old links to dead workbooks & delete.

=SUBSTITUTE(A1,RIGHT(A1),9)+0

where A1 houses a number or a formula that returns a numeric result that must be groomed.
