Hi,

I already used the search-function, but couldn't find the answer to my question: I need to round down an amount to the nearest multiple of five, but I can't seem to get it working using the ROUND or ROUNDDOWN-function... For example, 99047 has to become 99045 and 99043 has to become 99040

Any help appreciated...

If you really want to round 99047 to 99045 and not to 99050, then use:

=ROUNDDOWN(A1/5,0)*5
