Hi Sting79
you can use int but it will not always work so use a wrapper there was a piece on this on one of the VB sites but it seems gone now so here's the main thing about it

the bug decribed by MS
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q138/5/22.asp

Public Function mInt(ByVal Value As Double) As Integer
  mInt = Int(Value)
End Function

Hi Sting79,

As also already suggested by bruintje, If what you want is like:

11.50 -> 12
11.51 -> 12
11.49 -> 11

Then Round(11.xx) should work. If you want 11.50 to be 11 then do this:

Round(11.xx - .01).

Hope this helps.

The link supplied by aikimark states that the round function is not predictable when the rounding digit is 5. To get around this problem you can use the following instead:

y = int(x + 0.5)

This should give you predictable behaviour because int will always round down.

Points to note:

1) int returns a double so conversion might be needed (see
 bruintje's wrapper suggestion)
2) Consider using 'fix' instead of 'int' depending on the behaviour required for negative numbers (see aikimark's link)

Hi Sting79

Try this :


Dim i As Double

   i = 11.55

   If (i - Int(i)) > 0.5 Then
      MsgBox "A"
   Else
      MsgBox "B"
   End If
