Given a decimal number like “123.456” how can I get only the part before the decimal point (in this case “123”) without any rounding etc. being applied?

Use the `find()`

function.

`"230.22398, 12.3480".find(/(\d+)\./)`

returns the array of all the number without decimals.

`[ "230.", "12." ]`

For the same with one number:

`"230.22398".find(/(\d+)\./)[0]`

returns

`"230."`

Using Edit Cells -> Transforms:

`value.find(/(\d+)\./)`

@ostephens : shouldn't the parentheses remove the dot?

Another way to approach the problem is to convert your column of Numbers to Strings using the dropdown column menu.

Then use something like

`value.split(".")[0]`

which will split the String at the `.`

period character and yield 2 parts where you only want to return the first part `[0]`

, the one before the decimal.

Then optionally convert the column of transformed Strings back into Numbers.
