Round question

In vb6 I am having a Rounding problem.

Round(1.5,0) = 2            Makes sense
Round(11.5,0) = 12        Makes sense
Round(112.5,0) = 112    Does not make sense.  Why not 113?

I have defined my memory varialbles as Double, but the rounding as shown above is not working correctly.

Thanks

That is normal rounding behaviour. 1.49 will round down, 1.5 up

that says that VB6 rounds odd numbers up and even numbers down at .5

Round() rounds to the nearest even number. It's normal behavior and is called "Banker's rounding"/"Gaussian rounding" aside from "Standard rounding".

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim MyNumber As Double
Dim Tmp As Double
MyNumber = Text1.Text
If Not InStr(1, MyNumber, ".") Then MyNumber = MyNumber + ".1"
If Mid(MyNumber, 1, InStr(1, MyNumber, ".") - 1) Mod 2 = 0 Then
If Mid(MyNumber, InStr(1, MyNumber, ".") + 1) <> 5 Then
MyNumber = MyNumber + 0.1
End If
End If
MsgBox Round(MyNumber, 0)
End Sub

that will fix the problem, if u don't mind a little code

Thanks to everyone.  cfry001 - you were right.  VB6 does have an error that was not present in vb5.  Also, MS is not consistent among its apps in how it calcs rounding.  I read that same url.

Shauli - you provided the answer that was the most helpful, thanks.
