    =EVEN(A2) DOES NOT Round to the NEAREST(!) Even number.
    To the best of my knowledge it ROUNDS UP(!) to Nearest Even Number.
    Try it on: 34.0014 and 20.999.
    One of the possible formulas to return the Nearest Even number is: =INT(A2/2+0.5)*2

      We use Excel for our Estimating templates and use the following formula to round:
      =ROUND(A2/2,0)*2

      And for our formulas that our foremen receive, we use to folllowing (so they don't have our waste factors, because they'll use that extra 10% of material!):
      =ROUND(A2/2,-1)*2

      Hope this helps!
