Posted on 2013-12-19
Last Modified: 2013-12-19
I am trying to round a number (double) up to the next integer.  Here is a sample of the results I am looking for:

 1.25 rounds to 2
 .333 rounds to 1
 1.8 rounds to 2
1.111 rounds to 2

and so forth.  Anyone have a function to do this?

that is just ridiculously simple, but it does work.

Of course, this fails:

int(1.000001 +.999999)
 = 1
as well as other cases.

This never fails:


= 2

Thanks for Gustav (cactus_data) for this trick.

Great trick to round down a negative.

This also works. You must force the data type for teh math.

? int(CDbl(1.000001 +.999999))

if you want accuracy, use this to Round up:

I agree that -Int(-[YourNumber]) eliminates the chances for errors in accuracy. It should be the preferred method.

And it works for negative numbers!
? -int(-(-1.1))

Thanks Joe!

I should add that I can't take the credit, I'm rather the messenger. The method is as old as BASIC itself.
