Looking for a faster solution to a rounding function in access query.

I am looking to see if there is a faster alternative to the Rounding function we picked up from a previous question posted. Currently using a function called Round16. It looks like;

Public Function Round16(ByVal v As Double, Optional ByVal lngDecimals As Long = 0) As Double
' by Filipe Lage, fclage-NO~SPAM@kiss-ezlink.com, 20050322
  Round16 = CDbl(Format$(v * 10 ^ lngDecimals, "0")) / 10 ^ lngDecimals
End Function


This is working properly but it is slow. Anyone know of a faster alternative to this? The built in Round() function is not rounding properly for some reason.

Thanks for the help!

Rounding in Access is more complicated than you might think.  See Access Archon #94 (a guest article by Geoff Shepherd) for lots of info on rounding.

dont use function, use it in sql... does it make any difference?

select Round16(v, 2) as rounded_value from mytable
>>>
select CDbl(Format$(v * 10 ^ 2, "0")) / 10 ^ 2 as rounded_value from mytable

Yes, use the Round15 from this link which also performs a perfect 4/5 rounding:

Why not use the Round17 code?

Right, sorry, I didn't notice but did a copy and past from an old post.
