Try

Int() and Frac()

Frac gives You 0.9786 If You want to it to be an Integer value You must know how many decimals You vant. Example

I = Int(Frac(X)*10000) // gives an integer betveen 0 and 9999.

1. assign value to an integer variable
2. assign expression (value - (1)VARIABLEvalue) to a real variable, where (1)VARIABLEvalue is the integer variable used in step 1.
