Round a decimal value to the nearest quarter in Crystal Reports XI

I have a decimal value that I am pulling into a Crystal Report.  That value is then divided by 2.  After that I need to round it up to the nearest quarter.

Example:
The value of the field is 2.75
I divide that by 2 to get 1.37
I now need to round it up to 1.5 to be at the next quarter amount.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!!!!!!

This formula should work for you.. Replace 2.769 with your column...

numbervar test:= round(2.769,2);
stringvar whole:= left(totext(test),instr(totext(test),".")-1);
numbervar half:= cdbl(right(totext(test),instr(totext(test),".")));
stringvar newwhole;


if half in [1 to 25]
    then newwhole:=whole+'.25'
    else
    if half in [26 to 50]
        then newwhole:= whole&'.50'
        else
        if half in [51 to 75]
        then newwhole:= whole&'.75'
        else
            if half in [76 to 99]
                then newwhole:= totext(cdbl(whole)+1);

cdbl(newwhole)
