    Lightbulb Unanswered: Overflow

    Am creating a store managemaent system using Access 2003. On doing multiplication when the answer is more than 2 billions am getting message "Run-time error 6" Overflow.
    Here is the codes


    Private Sub txtvalue_Click()
    Dim num As Long, x As Long, y As Long

    x = CLng(txtuvalue)
    y = CLng(txtquantity)

    Me.txtvalue= x * y
    End Sub

    Does it mean Access 2003 can perform multiplication to an answer of 2 billion only??
    Thanks for your consideration.

    No, the limit applies only to long as explained at The Integer, Long, and Byte Data Types

    In theory, theory and practice are identical. In practice, theory and practice are unrelated.

    Thanks a lot. I've used Currency data type and it works.
