Is there a way to round to the hundreds spot in a double?  I am adding nickels dimes and quarters and sometimes I get some screwy number, I need to display this in a total window (text field) as money is deposited/deducted but I don't see an easy way to do this, I was just hopnig I missed it.

Thanks
