Dear Stata-listers

I have a minor issue with the way STATA is rounding, for example a
variable to one decimal place.

I used the command

gen x=round(y, 0.1)

Comparing the two variables, I noticed the that when:

   x=			  y=

 8.750		 8.7
 5.752		 5.8
23.256		23.3

Is there a way I can modify the function to round "x"=8.750 to be 8.8

Or should I put together my own code to get the rounding I want.

Many thanks in advance...


Amani
