    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
