Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1" Thank you for the quick responses. As noted below by Sally's response, both COMPUTE variable2 = RND(variable1*2)/2 . or alternatively, COMPUTE var2 = .5*(rnd(2*var1)) . create a range where values: 1.00 to 1.24 = 1.0 1.25 to 1.74 = 1.5 1.75 to 1.99 = 2.0 Are there any suggestions on how to get values such as 1.67 to round up to 2.0? Mathematically the method seems "sound," however, I can't help but feel that, subjectively, 1.67 should be 2.0 rather than 1.5. I'm not sure if anyone else agrees or what the exact "stand" on rounding really is. . Thanks in advance, M. Justice "S.
