Hi, is there a way to make my numbers always round up, say i have 1.1, i want it to always round up to 2, anyone know of a way of doing this, as the Round() function seems to go up or down depending on the decimal.

You bet:

function roundUp(numToRound)
  roundUp = Int(numToRound + .5)
end function

Oops, that's not right. That should be:

function roundUp(numToRound)
  roundUp = Round(numToRound + .5)
end function

The idea is that anything above .5 will round up, anything below downwards. Adding .5 to the value will always force a round up.

dim fNumber

fNumber = 1.1

fNewNumber = int(fNumber) + abs((fNumber - int(fNumber)) <> 0)

response.write(fNewNumber)
