CInt Function

Converts any string or numeric expression to an integer.


CInt (Expression As Variant) As Integer

Return value:



Expression: Any string or numeric expression that you want to convert. To convert a string expression, the number must be entered as normal text using the default number format of your LibreOffice locale settings. For instance, the number must be entered using a dot "." as the decimal point and a comma "," as the thousands separator (for instance 123,456.78) for the English locale setting.

If the argument is string, the function trims the leading white space; then it tries to recognize a number in following characters. The syntax below are recognized:

The rest of the string is ignored. If the string is not recognized, e.g. when after trimming leading whitespace it doesn't start with plus, minus, a decimal digit, or "&", or when the sequence after "&O" is longer than 11 characters or contains an alphabetic character, the numeric value of expression is 0.

If the argument is an error, the error number is used as numeric value of the expression.

If the argument is a date, number of days since 1899-12-30 (serial date) is used as numeric value of the expression. Time is represented as fraction of a day.

After calculating the numeric value of the expression, it is rounded to the nearest integer (if needed), and if the result is not between -32768 and 32767, LibreOffice Basic reports an overflow error. Otherwise, the result is returned.

Error codes:

5 Invalid procedure call
