I recently did a wage calc and asked a few people how to round up numbers and they told me to use the INT function but what does it stand for and Do?

Int stands for integer part, so int(6.7) will result in 6

you can use cint to round to nearest:
cint(1.4) = 1
cint(1.5) = 2

INT will always return the lowest integer value.
exmaple: INT(10.9)=10 , INT(-10.9)=-11
FIX will always return the integer part.
example: FIX(10.9)=10 , FIX(-10.9)=-10
CINT will round up the number to the closest integer value.
example: CINT(10.9)=11 , CINT(-10.4)=-10
