CLng function (LotusScript® Language)

Returns a value converted to the Long data type.


CLng ( expr )



Any numeric expression, or a string expression that LotusScript® can convert to a number.

Return value

CLng returns the value of expr rounded to the nearest integer, as a Long value.

CLng(EMPTY) returns 0.

If expr is a string expression, CLng returns the numeric representation of the string, rounded to the nearest integer. If LotusScript® cannot convert the string to a number, the function raises an error.

If the value of expr is too large to fit in the Long data type, the function raises an error.
