Need to round numbers to the nearest whole number that's divisible by 5. Eg: if c3 = 331, it needs to round to 330; if c3 = 333, it needs to round to 335. Seems easy, but cannot figure it out. Pls. help.

Use the MROUND Function from the Analysis Tool Pack

=MROUND(A1,5)

or (Aladin's choice)

=ROUND(A1/5,0)*5

If you want to avoid using the analysis toolpack, then do this...

if unrounded mod 5 > 2 then
rounded = unrounded + 5 - unrounded mod 5
else
rounded = unrounded - unrounded mod 5
end if

or something to that extent
