Tricky Negative Numbers
*by Tony Harris - Jenton Software*

**When trying to extract the integer portion of a number, we immediately think of using the INT function.**
However what if the number is negative? When we use the INT function on negative numbers, VB looks for the nearest whole number
**less** than the actual number we are using; e.g. Int(-3.65421) returns -4. This could be a real problem.

Therefore, use the **FIX** function, which gives the correct answer in both positive and negative cases.
