"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Will this work?

x = 1.9
MsgBox Round(x + 0.4)
End Sub

try this:

msgbox Convert(5.0)
msgbox Convert(5.1)
...
msgbox Convert(5.9)

Private Function Convert(strVal As Single)
    Convert = IIf((strVal * 10) \ 10 = strVal, strVal, Int(strVal + 1))
End Function

So that you get uniform results with negatives here is a simple but comprehensive function.

Hope this helps:~)

Function RoundToNext(psngNumeric As Single) As Single ' or whatevery type you need.

RoundToNext = Sgn(psngNumeric) * Int(Abs(psngNumeric) + 0.9999)

End Function

Dim x As Single
Dim y() As Single
Dim z As Single

Private Sub Command1_Click()
x = Text1.Text
End Sub
If InStr(1, x, ".") Then
y() = Split(x, ".")
z = x - y(0)
x = x + (0.1 - z)
End If
MsgBox x
Exit Sub
