Is there any ceil function on asp, and even pass the parameter of up to which decimal numbers.

E.g.
33.2 -> 34
33.8 -> 34

If pass parameter up to 1 decimal
33.24 -> 33.3
33.28 -> 33.3

If pass parameter up to 2 decimal
33.242 -> 33.25
33.246 -> 33.25

No, there is no function to do that, but i wrote it for you:

<%@ Language=VBScript %>
<%
function ceil(number)
      if isNumeric(number) then
            sTmp      = cstr(number)
            iPosPoint = instr(1,sTmp,".")
            ceil = number
            if iPosPoint > 0 then
                  iNumDec = len(sTmp) - iPosPoint
                  if iNumDec > 0 then
                        sTmp = left(sTmp,iPosPoint-1) & right(sTmp, iNumDec - 1)
                        sTmp = cstr(clng(stmp + 1))
                        sTmp = left(sTmp,len(sTmp)-(iNumDec-1)) & "." & right(sTmp,iNumDec-1)
                        ceil = csng(sTmp)
                  else
                        ceil = cint(left(sTmp,iPosPoint-1))
                  end if
            end if
      else
            ceil = 0
      end if
end function
%>

Here goes with for easy reading:

<%@ Language=VBScript %>
<%
function ceil(number)
      if isNumeric(number) then
            sTmp      = cstr(number)
            iPosPoint = instr(1,sTmp,".")
            ceil = number
            if iPosPoint > 0 then
                  iNumDec = len(sTmp) - iPosPoint
                  if iNumDec > 0 then
                        sTmp = left(sTmp,iPosPoint-1) & right(sTmp, iNumDec - 1)
                        sTmp = cstr(clng(stmp + 1))
                        sTmp = left(sTmp,len(sTmp)-(iNumDec-1)) & "." & right(sTmp,iNumDec-1)
                        ceil = csng(sTmp)
                  else
                        ceil = cint(left(sTmp,iPosPoint-1))
                  end if
            end if
      else
            ceil = 0
      end if
end function
%>

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

VBScript:

  Function CeilNum(i, n)
    Dim k

    k = CDbl("1e" & n)
    CeilNum = CInt(i * k) / k
  End Function

JavaScript:
  function ceilNum(i, n)
  {
    var k = parseFloat("1e" + n);

    return Math.ceil(i*k)/k;
  }

jkunal, round(33.2) = 33!
