Return the Fractional Part of a Number


No native VB function returns a fractional part of a decimal number. However, by subtracting the whole portion, obtained with Fix, from the original value, you can derive the fractional portion easily. Return the absolute value of this calculation to remove unwanted negatives:
 
Public Function Frac(ByVal Value As Double) _
As Double
Frac = Abs(Value - Fix(Value))
End Function
