Will this work?

Private Sub Command1_Click()
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
