Function that converts an expression into a Long (Number) value

Syntax CLng (expression)

Fractional values will be rounded to create a whole integer number, Tie-breaking: If the fraction is less than or equal to .5, the result will round down.

If the fraction is greater than .5, the result will round up.

CLng cannot handle Null values, use Nz() to convert Nulls to a valid number.

Examples

Dim lngDemo as Long

lngDemo = CLng(35000.50)

>35000

lngDemo = CLng(Nz(Me!txtInvoiceNo,0))
