Converting to Integer Problems

I am having problems converting a string value in a table to an integer.    An example is listed below.

   Note: psoc is defined as an integer.
         Table2's er_ssn is defined as a string.

psoc :=table2.FieldByName('er_ssn').asinteger;

Later I insert the value of psoc in a table and get...

psoc => -32324

if I do...
label1.capton :=table2.FieldByName('er_ssn').asstring;

I get ...
label1.caption => 006521276  (Which is the correct Number)

How do I populate the new table with the correct integer value???

   P.S.  I have changed the 'picture' property in the new table to display unsigned integer... But I still get -32324?

What do I do now....

You get this error, because integer types can't  contain such high values, these are the ranges.

SmallInt      -32768 .. 32767      Signed 16-bit

Longint      -2147483648 .. 2147483647      Signed 32-bit

What if you change the field to type LongInt, Cardinal? Or you have to go to real values. Also psoc has to be such a type!!
