does anyone know of a way that i can get my numbers to round up?  i've read some of the posts regarding why this is occuring so i understand the reasoning.  i am doing a schedule and i am trying to see if there is a formula that i can write to make numbers round up to the next whole number, maybe an "if" statement?  i need ANYTHING that would normally round down to round up.  for example, if i had an area that is 2.49sf then i need for it to round up to 3 instead of down to 2.  i think that the rounding is embedded in the program somewhere, and i can't figure out where to view how this is being done.  i've already edited my project units, so what i'm trying to figure out is more where the information for areas is being pulled from.  any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

We use a forced round-up in our occupancy schedule because all fractions of people count as a whole person. We make a parameter of integer type and have it do the formula and add .4999 to the results. For instance, "Area / SF per Person + .4999". 1.2 becomes 1.6999 and rounds up to to 2...1.8 becomes 2.2999 and rounds down to 2. we use .4999 instead of .5 in case the formula generates an integer result like exactly 300sf divided by 15 sf/person = 20 whole people which don't want to become 20.5 and round up to 21. Hope this helps.

Thanks!  This is probably the easiest integer round up tutorial for a code schedule anywhere...
