#### Rounding up Time Values

```Hi

I am using the formula below to round time values up,in this case t
the next five minute increment

=(TIME(HOUR(BB14),CEILING(MINUTE(BB14),BB13),0))

BB13 = 5
BB14 = 16:00:02

This formula only rounds up to 16:05:02 if the time is 16:01:00 o
greater,i would prefer it if the formula could make the time round u
as soon as one second has passed, 16:00:01 and not when one minute ha
passed.

Can this be done

```What is in BB14?
You can just use

=CEILING(BB14,5/1440)

will do what you want

Or if there are dates as well you can just format as time or remove the date

=CEILING(MOD(BB14,1),5/1440)

```Ade,

Is this what you want,

=ROUNDUP(BB14*24*(60/BB13),0)/24/(60/BB13)

or

=CEILING(BB14*24*(60/BB13),1)/24/(60/BB13)

```I have used the following formula to round up the time in cell BB3 t
the nearest five minutes.

=CEILING(BB3,5/1440)

this rounds up 11:20:01  to 11:25:00

I now need to round up to the nearest four hour increments

round up at            desired value
00:00:01               04:00:00
04:00:01               08:00:00
08:00:01               12:00:00
12:00:01               16:00:00
16:00:01               20:00:00
20:00:01               00:00:00

So i only want it to round up 6 times per day at the times shown in th
left column(at one second past the four hour period)

Not sure how to approach this

Thanks for the help

```My formula was based upon your original post and assumed the rounding
minutes factor in BB13. So you could have put 240 in there and it would have
worked.

Behind the times
Behind the times, I know. I have recently graduated from Office 2000 to 2003. In 2000, when I would insert a picture I could format it with one or more items (line, line color, position, etc) and then move on to the next jpg, hit the F4 key and the photo would have the same formatting. That doesn't seem to work in 2003. Help files discuss "repeat" on the edit menu, but it doesn't seem to work on a pic. What am I missing here?

When opening, it gives an error message about opening a file with the same name at the same time (even though I'm not). The error message continues by saying that it doesn't matter if the files are in different folders and suggests renaming one of the files. Any ideas? Thanks.

Time entered (and handled as data) in simple minutes and seconds.
Using Excel 2003. How can I get Excel to display and handle entries for duration in minutes and seconds only (without having to enter a 4'30" entry as 0:04:30)?

Combo values from query based on form fields

I have tried making the combo an unbound field and then setting the value of the bound field to that unbound field after update, but that still leads to the same issues. How can I do this?

Average time from date column?
