**CLng Function**
The CLng function converts an expression to type Long. Its parameter is expression which describes any valid expression. Returns an expression that has been converted to a Variant of subtype Long. In general, you can document your code using the subtype conversion functions to show that the result of some operation should be expressed as a particular data type rather than the default data type. For example, use CInt or clng to force integer arithmetic in cases where currency, single-precision, or double-precision arithmetic normally would occur. Use the clng function to provide internationally-aware conversions from any other data type to a Long subtype. For example, different decimal separators are properly recognized depending on the locale setting of your system, as are different thousand separators. If expression lies outside the acceptable range for the Long subtype, an error occurs.

Note :- The value must be a number between -2147483648 and 2147483647.

The Syntax of CLng function is :-

CLng(expression)

Example#1 :-

<% anynumber=1234.6 %>

<% =CLng(anynumber) %>

Output:

1235
