.NET will cast from string to decimal automatically in VB.

Dim Number As String = "12.65"
Dim DecimalNumber As Decimal = Number
Dim DecimalNumberRounded As Decimal = Math.Round(DecimalNumber,0,MidpointRounding.AwayFromZero)

You can also try this Function .Call it as RoundUpDownNumber(12.65)
Private Function RoundUpDownNumber(ByVal val As Decimal) As Decimal
        If val < Decimal.Zero Then
            Return CDec(Math.Ceiling(CDbl(val) - 0.5))
        Else
            Return CDec(Math.Floor(CDbl(val) + 0.5))
        End If

    End Function

I hope you don't mind if I ask this too. What if a number like this. I would like to keep ','
12,456.26  round to 12,456
112,456.45 round to 112,456
6,456.98  round to 6,457
Thank you very much in advance

otherwise if you already you have the "strings" you can do that:

Dim str As String = "12,456.26"
        MessageBox.Show(RoundUpToWholeNumber(Convert.ToDecimal(str.Replace(",", ""))))

Just a modification of @ed_collen's code (the very first post):

        Dim Number As String = "12,312.65"
        Dim DecimalNumber As Decimal = Number
        Dim DecimalNumberRounded As String = Math.Round(DecimalNumber, 0, MidpointRounding.AwayFromZero).ToString("###,###,###")

You are asking the moderator to reward the points and close the question for you.
Going forward, you can do it by yourself.
