    Access is automatically rounding numbers input (such as 1.5 rounding to 2).
    how do I get it to keep 1.5 rather than automatically rounding?

    Change the field type. You probably have it set as an integer. An integer,
    by definition, is a whole number.

    Change the fields type in the table from Integer or long, to double or single
    Long and integer type will round the number

    If I answered your question, please mark it as an answer. That way, it will
    stay saved for a longer time, so other can benefit from it.

    Good luck

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
