In a language whose library functions include things like Rate (interest rate per period for an annuity), SYD (sum-of-years' digits depreciation of an asset for a specified period), and IRR (internal rate of return for a series of periodic cash flows), you would imagine that a VB6 programmer would think that maybe ... just maybe ... the designers of VB would be insightful enough to include a function that rounded off numbers. Apparently not all programmers (especially Steve's predecessor) have that kind of intuition. To be fair though, his function is a bit more convenient than Round: global variables are used instead of cumbersome parameters to specify the number of places and fractional portion of a number ...
