# rounding up with < .5 ?

```Not sure just adding 0.5 would give the required result (if I understand the
problem correctly).
ie
tresult=round(x+0.5)

With three examples for x say 3.9, 4.0, and 4.1
tresult returns 4, 5 and 5

As the middle number is an integer then I'd guess it doesn't need rounding
up, so the required results should be 4,4,5. Unless I missed something....

Please see my other post relating to TRUNC.
