Help using the round function in clipper

Help using the round function in clipper

(OP)
Is there a way to make the clipper round function always round up.  If I round 1.4285 I want it always to come out 2 not 1

RE: Help using the round function in clipper

You could add .5 to the number before rounding it

CODE

? Round(1.4285 + .5)

Thanks, that works certainly with the example I gave you and I assume it would work with numbers that come out differently such as 1.75 which would also round to 2 even after adding the .5.  I am wondering if there is any figure that would not give the desired result.  I guess I need to do some testing.  

RE: Help using the round function in clipper

-1.6 might round badly?

Everything rounds exactly as I wanted with one exception.  I tested every number from 1.100 to 1.9999 and they all rounded to 2 which is exactly what I wanted. The only number that does not round properly is 1.000. That rounds to 2 and of course I want it to stay at 1.  But I can deal with that some other way.

RE: Help using the round function in clipper

You might try adding .499999....  out to the last decimal you will be using.  I assume 1.000 plus .4999 will round to 1.00.   untested

You can create a function pretty easily, use the INT() function, to create a second value subtract the two and if there is a difference add one to the INT() variable and you have rounded up one whenever there is a value to the
right of the decimal.
