I am using the round() function in my program.

when I used round(0.535,2) , I got answer 0.54
when I used round(0.536,2), I got 0.54

when I used round(0.525,2) , I got 0.52 (wrong)
when I used round(0.526,2) , I got 0.53

when I used round(0.515,2) , I got 0.52
when I used round(0.516,2), i got .52

when I used round(0.367,2) , I got 0.37
when I used round(0.357,2) , I got 0.36
when I used round(0.365,2) , I got 0.36(wrong)
when I used round(0.3656,2) , I got 0.37

etc. with different combinations and some are, most often with ending 5 and the penultimate number even gives me a wrong answer.

Do I need to set any thing through program, or any other effective function that can round values with data type double.
If not any SQL Server function for rounding.
