Access: Fix Function

In Access, the Fix function returns the integer portion of a number.

The syntax for the Fix function is:

Fix ( number )

The argument number can be any valid numeric expression. Fix removes the fractional part of number and returns the resulting integer value. The data type of the return value is the same as that of the number argument. If number is a string that can be converted to a number, the return type will be a double. If the number is negative, Fix returns the first negative integer greater than or equal to number. See Int .

Fix (3.45)     returns 3 
Fix (2.74)     returns 2
Fix (-16.58)   returns -16

VBA Code

Dim MyNumber 
MyNumber = Fix(15.47)

This example uses the Fix function to return the integer portion of a number 15.47. Now the MyNumber variable would contain the value 15.

SQL query

You can also use the Fix function in a query.

SELECT Fix([Price]) AS Expr1 
FROM Antiques
