    Unanswered: Overflow


    I have a question.

    dim num as Long

    num = 123000234123

    the message is giving out "Overflow".

    Do we have another datatype instead of the "Long"? I know the "Long" datatype cannot support all digits (123000234123).

    Its range is 2,147,483,648 to 2,147,483,647.

    Does anybody know how to solve?

    consider replacing all computers using this application with a 64 bit operating system, and suitable applikcation software - that might do the trick......

    outside of that you are going to have to do it the hard way and find some other method of storing such a large number. either split it into 2 components, or store it as text. the former would be far preferble to the latter, unless this number is never ever going to be used mathmatically, ie its just for show / presentation. if its going to be used for calcualtions then you have a serious problem writing a fucntion which can handle any mathmatcical process you require.
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton

    Use Double instead of Long
