This is getting sillier! This formula does not match the definition above - and indeed for non-negative C3 is identically zero! Try
```=0
```
```
Sorry, should be:
=MAX(0;INT(C3))
```
```
Again, for positive C3, that is identical to
=INT(C3)
- which was suggested by someone a long way earlier in this thread!

```Were there negative voters, you could use =TRUNC(C3).

This has been an interesting discussion because I have learnt that INT(-1.1) is 2 and if I want the integer part of -1.1 I need to use TRUNC. INT returns the next integer less than or equal to the value. TRUNC returns the integer part of the value (in the format I have shown).
