# to_int()

Converts the string token to an integer. This is a token function for the `WHERE` clause of a `LOAD` statement only. It cannot be used in a destination clause.

This function is necessary when you need to filter integer values during loading, as all tokens are treated as strings.

## Syntax

`to_int( token )`

## Return value

`INT`. The integer converted from the input token.

## Example

If we have the following data in a CSV file of the different scores of test takers, and we want to load a record if their score is higher than 95:

name score

Tommy

95

Amy

99

Amy

93

``````LOAD f TO VERTEX Person
VALUES ($"name",$"score")
WHERE to_int(\$"score") > 95``````

After loading, only the second row in the provided data is loaded, as it is the only record where the score is greater than 95.
