LibreOffice 7.3 Help

Rounds a numeric value to a specified number of decimal digits.

This function implements the rounding rule known as "round-to-even". With this rule, whenever the difference between the number to be rounded and its nearest integer is equal to 0.5, the number is rounded to the nearest even number. See the examples below to learn more about this rule.

Beware that VBA's Round function works differently than LibreOffice Calc's Round function. In Calc, if the difference between the number to be rounded and the nearest integer is exactly 0.5, then the number is rounded up. Hence, in Calc the number 2.5 is rounded to 3 whereas using VBA's Round function the value 2.5 is rounded to 2 due to the "round-to-even" rule.

Round(expression [,numdecimalplaces])

Double

expression: The numeric expression to be rounded.

numdecimalplaces: Optional argument that specifies the number of decimal digits in the resulting rounded value. The default value is 0.

```
Option VBASupport 1
Sub Example_Round
Dim r
r = Pi
print r ' 3,14159265358979
print Round(r, 5) ' 3,14159
r = exp(1)
print r ' 2,71828182845904
print Round(r) ' 3
End Sub
```

The following examples illustrate the "round-to-even" rule:

```
' Rounding to the nearest integer (decimalplaces = 0)
MsgBox Round(3.5) ' 4
MsgBox Round(4.5) ' 4
MsgBox Round(5.5) ' 6
MsgBox Round(6.5) ' 6
' Rounding with 2 decimal digits (decimalplaces = 2)
MsgBox Round(1.555, 2) ' 1.56
MsgBox Round(1.565, 2) ' 1.56
MsgBox Round(1.575, 2) ' 1.58
MsgBox Round(1.585, 2) ' 1.58
