Modulo Function that allow decimal

In VBA the function modulo round decimals before carrying out calculation. I seek a function which won't round the decimal before carrying out the modulo.

Pomme,


I'm guessing you need to declare your arguments and/or any variables used in the function as Double instead of Integer.  I could tell you for sure if you post the Function here.

Pomme:

MOD is an operator which works only with Integer numeric types; which is why it will round any Real numbers before performing the MODULO operation.

I am not certain exactly what you are seeking. Are you wanting to *truncate* the fractional part of the numbers and then perform the MODULO operation?

At any rate, you will need to write your own custom function to accomplish what you desire.

Multiply the numbers by 10 rasied to the x power where x represents the number of decimals that you might have.  Then perform the mod.
