How do I get prices to round down to nearest nickle without using code? Id like to do it from with the query. Here's what Ive tried but it throws the price totally out of whack:

Round(20*products.price+inventoryprofile.estshipcost,0)/20

Thanks.

You need to use brackets ( ) to make sure that the multiplication applies to the whole expression, not just the products.price:
Round(20*(products.price+inventoryprofile.estshipcost),0)/20

No Woo Hoo, as this code doesn't round down but rounds to the nearest even.
Further, Round is buggy.

To round down, you need this:

    ListPrice: Int(20*(products.price+inventoryprofile.estshipcost))/20

If you have a serious need for rounding, study the options here:

Rounding values up, down, by 4/5, or to significant figures
