I tried the below and it works for most of the numbers but doesnt for 2760. For 2760 I am getting 2500 but would need 3000 as a result, please help

     
SELECT ROUND ( column/500 , 0, 0)*500

You can round to even 100 like so:

(CAST(ROUND(MAX(DISTINCT i.invoice_amt), -2) AS INT))

Duh, that won't work, but Round(x/500)*500 works fine on my Access system.

Never mind.  Hopefully this will do the whole thing in one shot

(CAST((MAX(DISTINCT i.invoice_amt) + 250.0) / 500.0 * 500.0 AS INT))

SELECT ROUND ( column/500.0 , 0, 0)*500

just put the 500.0 in the divisor to make it do the calc as a float
