Explanation of Rounding Algorithm in Hyperion Financial Management Rules (Doc ID 742754.1)

Last updated on APRIL 24, 2018

Applies to:

Hyperion Financial Management - Version to [Release 4.1 to 11.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In Hyperion Financial Management rules the VBScript Round() function does not round "4 down / 5 up".   At 0.5, the VBScript or Excel function rounds either up or down depending on whether the preceding figure is odd or even.  This should provide a statistically "even" number of instances that round up to those that round down.

A custom routine in rules must be used if "4 down / 5 up" rounding is required.
