I need to convert decimal numbers to fractions in Access 97.

Function getpart (var As Double)

Dim var1 As String, var2 As String, var3 As String, var4 As String

var1 = Mid$(Str(var), 1, InStr(Str(var), ".") - 1)
var2 = Mid$(Str(var), InStr(Str(var), ".") + 1, 99)

Select Case var2
    Case "2"
        var3 = "1/5"
