I want to know the largest data type for displaying very long numbers. (They are not floating point but have in the vicinity of 10-20 zeros after the 1) i do not want them to display with the power symbol, if possible i would like them to show all the digits...

You can cast a Variant into the Decimal data type.  This supports 28 decimal places.


Dim vDec As Variant
vDec = CDec("12345678901234567890")
vDec = vDec + 12345
MsgBox vDec
