IF STATEMENT
Sierra, you've moved all the goal posts!
But, I think/hope, what you are asking here is how to add .01 when there are 2 decimal places, .001 when there are 3 decimal places, etc., is that correct? If so, then you need something like: B9+1*10^(LEN(B9)FIND(".",B9)) instead of B9+0.1 HTH Steve D. "sbain" wrote in message ... Ok. Now I have the following problem: The following numbers are in column B: B3 2.0 B4 1.1 B5 1.02 My formula is =IF(COUNTIF(B9:G9,"*"),ROUNDUP(B9,0),B9+0.1), because I want the number in B3 & B4 to be 1.2 but for B5 I want it to be 1.03. How do I change the formula or add on to it to reflect numbers that have an extra space?  Sierra "T. Valko" wrote: =IF(COUNTIF(C3:F3,"*"),ROUNDUP(B3,0),B3+0.01) what does the "*" represent?

You are correct in assuming that I need to account for numbers that have one decimal place and two decimal places, but does your formula still do the basis of what I need, in that if the "if" statement is true it will roundup to the next whole number?

NOT the range B9:G9 that you said you were using in your formula. If you include B9, then the COUNTIF will always return at least a value of 1 which means the true part of the IF statement will always execute.

IF STATEMENT
Just an observation... you do not need to multiply the power of 10 by 1
(that is, you can leave out the 1* from your formula... =IF(COUNTIF(B9:G9,"*"),ROUNDUP(B9,0),B9+10^(LEN(B9)FIND(".",B9))) I also noted changed the range in the COUNTIF function to C9:G9... if B9 is included, the IF function will always be TRUE. I posted this formula in my own response to this thread and noted that the formula will not work if both B9 contains a whole number and one or more of the cells in C9:G9 have values in them... unfortunately, the OP never said what he wants added to whole numbers, so I didn't know how to patch the formula to avoid the error.

I posted this formula in my own response to this thread and noted that the formula will not work if both B9 contains a whole number and one or more of the cells in C9:G9 have values in them... unfortunately, the OP never said what he wants added to whole numbers, so I didn't know how to patch the formula to avoid the error.  Rick (MVP  Excel) "Steve Dunn" wrote in message ... Sierra, what I gave you was only a part of the overall formula, your finished formula would be: =IF(COUNTIF(B9:G9,"*"),ROUNDUP(B9,0), B9+1*10^(LEN(B9)FIND(".",B9))) "sbain" wrote in message ... Steve: You are correct in assuming that I need to account for numbers that have one decimal place and two decimal places, but does your formula still do the basis of what I need, in that if the "if" statement is true it will roundup to the next whole number? Please let me know. THanks.  Sierra "Steve Dunn" wrote: Sierra, you've moved all the goal posts! But, I think/hope, what you are asking here is how to add .01 when there are 2 decimal places, .001 when there are 3 decimal places, etc., is that correct? If so, then you need something like: B9+1*10^(LEN(B9)FIND(".",B9)) instead of B9+0.1 HTH Steve D. "sbain" wrote in message ... Ok. Now I have the following problem: The following numbers are in column B: B3 2.0 B4 1.1 B5 1.02 My formula is =IF(COUNTIF(B9:G9,"*"),ROUNDUP(B9,0),B9+0.1), because I want the number in B3 & B4 to be 1.2 but for B5 I want it to be 1.03. How do I change the formula or add on to it to reflect numbers that have an extra space?  Sierra "T. Valko" wrote: =IF(COUNTIF(C3:F3,"*"),ROUNDUP(B3,0),B3+0.01) what does the "*" represent?

If I were to do the formula as is, and left the row blank then it would add .01 to b3, but if later I wanted to change the outcome and put a character into c3:f3, shouldn't the answer automatically round b3 to the next whole number or would I have to rewrite the formula.

IF STATEMENT
Sorry about the delay, I was just checking back through my posts and noticed
I'd missed this one. =IF(COUNTIF(C9:G9,"*"),ROUNDUP(B9,0)+(INT(B9)=B9), B9+10^(LEN(B9)IF(INT(B9)=B9,0,FIND(".",B9)))) "sbain" wrote in message ... If B9 is a whole number (1.00) and if C9:G9 are blank, then H9 should be B9+.1 or 1.1. If any column between c9:g9 contain a character, then H9 should round up to next whole number. Only if a number in column B has two decimal places (1.03) and C9:G9 are blank, then H9 needs to be B9+.01.  Sierra "Rick Rothstein" wrote: Here is what Steve posted placed inside the IF function call that you originally asked for.... =IF(COUNTIF(C9:G9,"*"),ROUNDUP(B9,0),B9+10^(LEN(B9)FIND(".",B9))) However, there is one possible problem with this formula... it will error out if the value in B9 is a whole number with no decimal part (and if there is something in C9:G9). I would have patched it for Steve, but you never told us what should happen when B9 contains a whole number... should it have 1 added to it (that is, if B9 contained, say, 5, should it become 6)?
