# 3675 ROUND Function Not Working Correctly with Floating-Point Numbers

The round function seem have problem on this situation :

ROUND (5.625 TO 2) return 5.62. For me, the result must be 5.63

ROUND (5.6251 TO 2) return 5.63. This is correct.


Comments Comments and Workarounds
The problem was with how the rounding function was being calculated. It would occasionally, depending upon the number, aggregate too many floating-point "representation" issues during intermediate calculation steps, which would cause the resulting rounded number to be different than expected. The workaround is to CAST the incoming value to a DECIMAL value first before passing it to the ROUND function.

This issue was originally reported for ElevateDB, but also affected DBISAM.
