I have several numbers collected from a database that I need to round.

These numbers vary from 2.444 to 2.645 and different again.

I need all number rounding to 0.5 mark, so 1.666 would be 1.5 1.444 would be 1.5 but 1.2333 would be 1.

How can I accomplish this in visual basic 6?

the usual trick is to multiply by 2, round, and divide by 2

i no longer have vb 6 installed but there should be a function called round that will do the trick for you

it should be:

int(yournumber*2)/2

You solution works, but not as entirely expected. A Figure of  21.77 gets rounded down to 21.5 not to 22 like it should be.

i think you will be more accurate if you search out the vb6 math library.
