What I mean is that:

1. We have clients who want to run the software but don't have access to the
   DB in the first place.

2. It's the bottleneck of the application.  The data needs to come from a
   server from a remote network.  The data has to come down the wire.  It's
   not coming from localhost.

Hope this satisfies your curiosity.  :-)


How VBA rounds a number depends on the number's internal representation.
You cannot always predict how it will round when the rounding digit is 5.
If you want a rounding function that rounds according to predictable rules,
you should write your own.
