PROBLEM: I need to round up to the nearest $1000 to calculate
a new benefit formula.
SOLUTION: 1) Set up a function keyword to do the rounding. In this example,
we are assuming that you already have a function keyword
|ANNSAL| set up to calculate your annual salary. You can
see an example of this in our payroll documentation if you
do not already have it. We are calling this new function
keyword |RNDSAL|.
|ANNSAL| - (|ANNSAL| modulo 1000) + 1000
2) You can now use this function keyword in your benefit's
formula.
EXAMPLE: |RNDSAL| * .5
