You can use this code and your code will be corrected:


But it's not safety. You can use direct convert methods that defined in sysutils.

A fine solution (and save) is

y := trunc(x);

this always works :)

Additionally you can use this procedure

Function CurrencyToInteger(CurType: Currency): Integer;
  i: integer;
  j: Comp;
CurrencyToComp(CurType, j);

Just my 2 cents:
Currency type variables contain real numbers. Converting them to integer numbers will cut, truncate or round their values throwing the fractional parts away. How will you do this depends on what you want to achieve. Ask yourself the following questions and let us know the answers.

- do you need the integer part only (regardless of the fractional part)?
- do you need to round the integer part depending on the fractional part (if >= 0.50 then +1 to the result)?
- how the negative values have to be processed?
