Subject: Integer part of divide


I just know this has to be simple but I need to divide one number by
another and get just the integer part of the result.  So 20 / 7 would be 2
for example. I tried setting the number format to "#" but I still get
decimals in the result (that's not right is it?).

For now I'm setting the itemdelimiter to "." and extracting item 1 of the
result of the division.
