Rounding - but not as you know it.

I have a column of decimal number that I want to round to the nearest whole number.

However I don't want to round at the half way point.

If the number is 0.25 - 0.99 I want to round up.

If it is 0.01-0.24 I want to round down.

How do I do this?

Example of my numbers

0.7407407 UP
0.5185185 UP
13.5111111 UP
7.7777778 UP
2.6740741 UP
6.8888889 UP
1.5925926 UP
4.845679 UP
0.4876543 UP
10.0111111 DOWN!!!!!
8.9027778 UP
3.9814815 UP

Round to nearest half hour?
Use =MROUND(A2,"0:30") to round to nearest half hour. Use =CEILING(A2,"0:30") to round to next half hour.
