ROUND in SQL query

In a SQL query, I use the ROUND function  to round a double type field with n decimals. The problem is that it rounds to the closiest even number, and I'd like to round to  the closiest integer !
For example : ROUND(1.5 , 0) ==> 2
                      ROUND(2.5 , 0) ==> 2

I want : MyFunction(1.5, 0) ==> 2
             MyFunction(2.5, 0) ==> 3

Same thing with n decimals
(I have a solution in ACCESS but not in SQL-SERVER and ORACLE: under ACCESS it is like that :
...SET amount =  fix(amount*rate*10^NbDecimals+0.5)/10^NbDecimals

Thank you for help.
