INTN is the same as INT except that INTN stores NULL values.  Note that in INTN 0 is *not* NULL...INTN can store all of the values an INT can, *or* it can be NULL.  This datatype is for internal use by the SQL server.  See the following page for more info:

to "INTN is the same as INT except that INTN can store NULL values
