I had never heard of bankers rounding before. Interesting concept.
There is no such function in OOo/LO, Excel or Gnumeric...
But you can easily create a function
=IF(A1-INT(A1)=0.5;IF(ISEVEN(INT(A1));A1-0.5;A1+0.5);ROUND(A1))
(Adjust if your separator is a comma instead of a semi-colon)
What this does is check if the fractional part is 0.5 and adds 0.5 to the
number if the integer is odd and subtracts if it is even. If it is not
0.5 then it uses the regular Round() function ;)
Hope this helps!
Due to shortcomings in LibreOffice Calc (maybe in other spreadsheets too, I
don't know), I had to adjust your formula as follows:
=IF(ROUND(A1-INT(A1),8)=0.5,IF(MOD(ROUND(A1-0.5),2),A1+0.5,A1-0.5),ROUND(A1))
and for the more usual case of needing to do a Bankers Round to a penny and
not a dollar, I am actually using this:
=IF(ROUND(100*A1-INT(100*A1),8)=0.5,IF(MOD(ROUND(100*A1-0.5),2),A1+0.005,A1-0.005),ROUND(A1,2))
The reason I needed to use ROUND... in both tests is that LibraOffice Calc
seems to often come up with numbers like .499999999... when evaluating
A1-INT(A1) instead of .5, causing the test to fail when it should work.
The reason I needed to use MOD(ROUND... instead of ISEVEN(INT... is that
after closing and opening the file, anywhere Calc needed to evaluate
IF(...IF(ISEVEN(INT... it gave a "#MACRO?" error. I don't know why
MOD(ROUND... works fine but ISEVEN(INT.... doesn't. Also, MOD(x,2) returns
"0" for even and "1" for odd, so it's really replacing ISODD..., and so I
had to add .5 instead of subtract .5 when MOD... is "true".
And of course, the reason for multiplying by 100 is to use the same idea for
pennies instead of dollars.
