Hello timohorn,

Try to use the one below:


Round([SubtotaalHoog],2)+Round([SubtotaalLaag],2)+Round([BTWhoog],2)+Round([BTWlaag],2)

Sincerely,

Ed

You may try similar with this one:

Total1: Int(100*[Val1])/100+Int(100*[Val2])/100+Int(100*[Val3])/100

I tested it and it worked for me. I hope it will work with you as well.

In your query, you may have:

Int(100*[SubtotaalHoog])/100+Int(100*[SubtotaalLaag])/100+Int(100*[BTWhoog])/100+Int(100*[BTWlaag])/100

Sincerely,

Use Format and CCur to make a traditional 4/5 rounding:

CCur(Format(65.75, "0.00")) + CCur(Format(72.60, "0.00")) + CCur(Format(13.8075, "0.00")) + CCur(Format(4.356, "0.00"))

=> 156.52

solved it with a work around, first i update the BTW field to two decimals, and then run the query, works fine.

The reason is that Access normally does Banker's Rounding which is not was many are "hoping for".
The only exception is Format which, however, returns a string, thus the result(s) must be converted to numeric value(s) as the second step.
