I need to convert a variable from a varchar to an int. I am requesting a username from a website. this username is actually a number. It needs
    to be checked against the SQL table which stores the username as an Int. What would the syntax be. This is what I tried, but failed.

    User = Convert("Individual","Username",SQL_Int)
