Access Tip: Rounding Numbers
By Richard Rost     2/12/2009 6:32:06 PM

Sorry for the lack of new material or even blog posts. I've been so busy recording new material.

I did have time today, however, to add a new Access Tip. I get asked ALL the time how to round numbers in different ways in Access. There are THREE functions you should be familiar with:

Round, Fix, and Int

Knowing how to use these three functions will give you all the tools you need to round off numbers ANY way you need to.

Here's the new tip: Rounding Numbers in Access

Enjoy!
Richard

P.S. Stay tuned for more videos coming VERY soon.

There is no way. Unfortunately Int is working in a very strange way in MS access. It actually rounds up the number if the decimal part is 0.5 or more.

I have a simple query using a field that divides 21,886.66 by 12 the answer received is 1823.00 instead of 1823.88. The field is set to standard in the query.

I want to make a calculation which is field name = round([fieldname]* 50/100,0) but this results in fractions between 1 to 49 rounds down to the previous integer whereas decimals from 50 onwards to the next integer. So please tell me whether there is any simple in built function which can roundup at every stage ie. 10.01 to 11 or 10.50 to 11 but if the resultant figure is 10 then it should be 10. Thanks and regards

Hi Aaitaman,

Click on the textbox then open the Property Sheet.
Now on the Format tab make sure the Format is Percent and the Decimal Places is 0

I have unbound textbox where i used =[Safe]/[Obser]to get total percent and i got the total percent but have two extra digits. i used this =Round ([Safe]/[Obser],0) as well to rid of those two extra digit but did not fix my problems
