Understanding Int, Fix, Round, Banker's Rounding

S  M  L  XL  FS  |  Slo  Reg  Fast  2x  |  Bookmark

In this video, I'm going to teach you all about rounding in Microsoft Access. We'll look at the Round, Int, and Fix functions and how they're different. We'll learn about Banker's Rounding. Then, we'll see how to round a number to the nearest interval (5, 10, 100, etc.)

Phillis from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada (A Silver Member) asks: I need to calculate a commission rate based on monthly sales. The rate is based on whole dollar amounts only, and we chop off any cents. I know about the Round function, but I don't ever want to round up. How can I do this?

# Members

Members will learn how to take some of these complex functions and turn them into global VBA functions. We'll make a function called RoundUp to round a number up to the nearest integer. RoundTo will round to the nearest interval (10, 100, etc.). Finally, we'll make a SchoolRound function which rounds the way you were taught in high school, where 1-4 rounds down and 5-9 always rounds up.

# Tip

Another way to think of Banker's Rounding is that numbers are always rounded to the nearest EVEN number. So...

• 1.5 would round to 2
• 2.5 would round to 2
• 3.5 would round to 4
• etc.
