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.
