Returns the integer portion of a number.

```
public:
static System::Decimal Fix(System::Decimal Number);
```

`public static decimal Fix (decimal Number);`

`static member Fix : decimal -> decimal`

`Public Function Fix (Number As Decimal) As Decimal`

#### Parameters

- Number
- Decimal

Required. A number of type `Decimal`

or any valid numeric expression.

#### Returns

The integer portion of a number.

#### Exceptions

Number is not specified.

Number is not a numeric type.

### Examples

This example illustrates how the `Int`

and `Fix`

functions return integer portions of numbers. In the case of a negative number argument, the `Int`

function returns the first negative integer less than or equal to the number; the `Fix`

function returns the first negative integer greater than or equal to the number. The following example requires you to specify `Option Strict Off`

because implicit conversions from type `Double`

to type `Integer`

are not allowed under `Option Strict On`

:

```
' This code requires Option Strict Off
Dim MyNumber As Integer
MyNumber = Int(99.8) ' Returns 99.
MyNumber = Fix(99.8) ' Returns 99.
MyNumber = Int(-99.8) ' Returns -100.
MyNumber = Fix(-99.8) ' Returns -99.
MyNumber = Int(-99.2) ' Returns -100.
MyNumber = Fix(-99.2) ' Returns -99.
```

You can use the `CInt`

function to explicitly convert other data types to type `Integer`

with `Option Strict Off`

. However, `CInt`

rounds to the nearest integer instead of truncating the fractional part of numbers. For example:

```
MyNumber = CInt(99.8) ' Returns 100.
MyNumber = CInt(-99.8) ' Returns -100.
MyNumber = CInt(-99.2) ' Returns -99.
```

You can use the `CInt`

function on the result of a call to `Fix`

or `Int`

to perform explicit conversion to integer without rounding. For example:

```
MyNumber = CInt(Fix(99.8)) ' Returns 99.
MyNumber = CInt(Int(99.8)) ' Returns 99.
```

For more information on `CInt`

, see Type Conversion Functions.

### Remarks

Both the `Int`

and `Fix`

functions remove the fractional part of `Number`

and return the resulting integer value.

The difference between `Int`

and `Fix`

functions is that if `Number`

is negative, `Int`

returns the first negative integer less than or equal to `Number`

, whereas `Fix`

returns the first negative integer greater than or equal to `Number`

. For example, `Int`

converts -8.4 to -9, and `Fix`

converts -8.4 to -8.

`Fix(number)`

is equivalent to `Sign(number) * Int(Abs(number)).`

converts -8.4 to -8.

`Fix(number)`

is equivalent to `Sign(number) * Int(Abs(number)).`

Starting with Visual Basic 15.8, the performance of `Double`

-to-integer conversion is optimized if you pass the value returned by the `Fix`

method to the any of the integral conversion functions, or if the `Double`

value returned by `Fix`

is implicitly converted to an integer with Option Strict set to `Off`

. This optimization allows code to run faster -- up to twice as fast for code that does a large number of conversions to integer types. The following example illustrates such an optimized conversion:

```
Dim d As Double = 173.7619
Dim i1 As Integer = CInt(Fix(d)) ' Result: 173
```
