SQLServerCentral » SQL Server 2012 » SQL 2012 - General » Rounding a number up to the nearest 5InstantForum 2016-2 FinalSQLServerCentralhttps://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/SQLServerCentralWed, 26 Apr 2017 04:39:20 GMT20Rounding a number up to the nearest 5https://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/FindPost1494726.aspxSo I am attempting to mimic some legacy code on an old server at my work. It has a calculation to determine cost. What I need to do is round the number up to the nearest 5th.
For example:
1.0 -> 5 (everything less than 5 gets rounded to give)
5-> 5
5.75->5
8->10
11->15
86.5->90
so any number that has a 5 in it before the decimal - will stay rounded to 5. Example - 75.65 -> 75.
I have the following code:
declare @mon numeric(10,2)
set @mon = 86.5
select case when (round(@mon/5,0)*5) < 5 then 5
else (round(@mon/5,0)*5)
end
However - when I run it - 86.5 gets rounded to 85. I need it to round to 90.
Any suggestions?Wed, 18 Sep 2013 18:06:22 GMTsmrobinRE: Rounding a number up to the nearest 5https://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/FindPost1496179.aspx[quote][b]Don Halloran (9/18/2013)[/b][hr]select ceiling(floor(@somevalue) / 5.0) * 5.0[/quote]
A MUCH better solution!Wed, 18 Sep 2013 18:06:22 GMTLinksUpRE: Rounding a number up to the nearest 5https://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/FindPost1496177.aspxselect ceiling(floor(@somevalue) / 5.0) * 5.0Wed, 18 Sep 2013 17:52:03 GMTDon HalloranRE: Rounding a number up to the nearest 5https://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/FindPost1495330.aspx[quote][b]smrobin (9/16/2013)[/b][hr]Thanks for the replies guy!

Two way street here, my friend. Please post what you ended up with.

I have the rules to which I apply to the numbers.

Not sure who you are talking to!
Since you did not provide any dll or sample data, it had to be made up. Both solutions are generic in that you have to modify either of them to use your table and your column names. Also, both solutions are rounding up whatever is passed to them. There is no "fixed" value.

I was hoping to write a simple case statement to handle everything.

Is that not what I posted?

Plus you could easily turn this into a SP passing any value that you want to round to. NOTE: I borrowed Mr. Lange's cte to demo the solution. (Thank-you!)
[code]
;with MyData (MyValue, Target) as
(
select 0.5, 5 union all
select 1.0, 5 union all
select 2.0, 5 union all
select 5, 5 union all
select 5.75, 5 union all
select 8, 10 union all
select 11, 15 union all
select 50, 50 union all
select 50.5, 50 union all
select 50.75, 50 union all
select 51, 55 union all
select 54.99, 55 union all
select 86.5, 90
)
Select d.MyValue, d.Target,
case when d.MyValue % 5 < 1 then FLOOR(d.MyValue)
when d.MyValue % 5 < 3 then FLOOR ((d.MyValue + (5.0 / 2.0)) / 5) * 5.0 + 5.0
else FLOOR((d.MyValue + (5.0 / 2.0)) / 5) * 5.0
end as Result
from MyData d
[/code]
The case statement was required because you are rounding UP to the nearest 5, not just to the nearest 5.
Fri, 13 Sep 2013 15:08:33 GMTLinksUpRE: Rounding a number up to the nearest 5https://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/FindPost1494732.aspxYou can use a tally for this pretty easily.
Here is the code to create a tally table view. This is super fast!!!
[code]
create View [dbo].[Tally] as
WITH
E1(N) AS (select 1 from (values (1),(1),(1),(1),(1),(1),(1),(1),(1),(1))dt(n)),
E2(N) AS (SELECT 1 FROM E1 a, E1 b), --10E+2 or 100 rows
E4(N) AS (SELECT 1 FROM E2 a, E2 b), --10E+4 or 10,000 rows max
cteTally(N) AS
(
SELECT ROW_NUMBER() OVER (ORDER BY (SELECT NULL)) FROM E4
)
select N from cteTally
GO
[/code]
Now we just need to create your query. Please note that I used a cte here because we didn't have a table of data to work with.
[code]
with MyData (MyValue, Target) as
(
select 1.0, 5 union all
select 5, 5 union all
select 5.75, 5 union all
select 8, 10 union all
select 11, 15 union all
select 86.5, 90
)
select *
from MyData d
cross apply
(
select top 1 * from Tally
where N >= d.MyValue
and N % 5 = 0
order by N
) x
[/code]
