Coldfusion varchar to integer

I am trying to convert a datatype of varchar to interger. The reason is I need the string to work using the sql between statement. I'm extracting results from a database and creating a total for each range. See code below

<cfparam name="sortby" default="Pub_Detail_Order_Date">
<cfif isDefined("url.sortby")>
      <cfset sortby = url.sortby>
</cfif>
<cfparam name="direction" default="DESC">
<cfif isDefined("url.direction")>
      <cfset direction = url.direction>
</cfif>
<cfquery datasource="#application.dsName#" username="#application.dsUserName#" password="#application.dsPassword#" name="forms">
SELECT *
FROM Pub_Details
            WHERE Pub_Detail_Title LIKE '%IMPRINTED - %'
                  Order BY #sortby# #direction#

</cfquery>

<cfquery dbtype="query" name="first_qry">
     SELECT * FROM forms WHERE Pub_Detail_Qty >= '0' and Pub_Detail_Qty <= '999'
</cfquery>
<cfquery dbtype="query" name="second_qry">
     SELECT * FROM forms WHERE Pub_Detail_Qty >= '1000' and Pub_Detail_Qty <= '1999'
</cfquery>
<cfquery dbtype="query" name="third_qry">
     SELECT * FROM forms WHERE Pub_Detail_Qty >= '2000'
</cfquery>

I get great results, except that I don't only get numbers 0 - 999 in the first query. 1500 shows up too. I am using MSSQL. The following code is what gets generated for the first query of a query:

Imprinting and Blank Orders Between 0 and 999

do NOT use quotes around numerical data/fields:

     SELECT * FROM forms WHERE Pub_Detail_Qty >= 0 and Pub_Detail_Qty <= 999

     SELECT * FROM forms WHERE Pub_Detail_Qty >=  1000 and Pub_Detail_Qty <=  1999

etc

hopefully, the field Pub_Details_Qty is of numerical data type, otherwise you should change that.
