Getting numbers to round up using FormCalc

I'm trying to do a mileage form in LiveCycle. The mileage rate is .505 and the math rounds up fine when an odd number of miles is used (13, 15, 17 etc) ..so, miles x .505 = xx.xx until the user adds a bridge toll then the sum rounds down.



Check out my form and tell me what the heck I'm doing wrong please..

thanks!

The FormCalc function to round numbers is Round().

To round a fields own value to two decimal places use:

$ = Round($, 2)

Well, the pattern will only change the displayed value but not the rawValue stored in the data DOM.

So you'll get the unrounded value when you use it somewhere else.
