Determining an Integer Value

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated September 28, 2013)

VBA, true to its BASIC roots, provides a function to return the integer value of an expression. This means that anything to the right of the decimal point is truncated. Thus, if a formula would normally result in a value such as 18.73, then the integer value of that formula would result in 18.

The syntax for the integer function is as follows:

x = Int(y)

where x is the result and y is a value or an expression that evaluates to a value.
