Thanks for the suggestion, however I'm in the dark as to how to use this in
my current script, for example this is the script in the field that
generates the number that needs to be rounded:

on closefield
  put fld "Tot0" / fld "Grp0" into fld "Cpp0"
end closefield

Should the statRound function go here, or in some other place?
