vNumber: The number which is tested to see if it is prime. Function returns Null if vNumber is Null or cannot be fixed up to a number.
Warning: The floating-point part of vNumber (if any) is ignored as in example #7.
Note: Function uses the absolute value of the number to determine if it is prime as in example #8.
