I have 16 digit max currency numbers,
I need to add these, but I cannot do it, because VB have no supported type for this... bigger than LONG.

   Both + and - values I have...

What Can I do for this? How can I add and display these correctly...

Sample:
Num1: 10,000,000,123
Num2: 15,000,000,450
I wanna add these two number...  (No .00)

if at all its required to do these type of calculations i do this in SQLs. for example in Oracle

select to_char(Num1+Num2) from dual

will return exact calculated value without truncation. then use the returned value and format it using format(returnval,"#,#0")

replace Num1 and Num2 with actual values

Use the currency data type?

optionally try the Double data type as:

Range of double is 1.7E +/- 308 (15 digits).

IF I undestand right you can do:

Dim x As Currency
Dim y As Currency

x = 10000000123#
y = 15000000450#

Debug.Print Format(x + y, "#,###")

The datatype currency and double are 8 bytes numbers.

Good luck

Use the double data type it can deal with larger values.

Integer 2 bytes     -32,768 to 32,767
Long    4 bytes     -2,147,483,648 to 2,147,483,647
Single  4 bytes    
       -3.402823E38 to -1.401298E-45 for negative
        1.401298E-45 to 3.402823E38 for positive
Double  8 bytes
  -1.79769313486232E308 to -4.94065645841247E-324 (-)      
     4.94065645841247E-324 to 1.79769313486232E308 (+)

Sorry ryancys,
I though "C" as a HALF POINT...

But it is not!

How can I change this? If not, post a comment to
"point and grade for ryancsys"
and get A :))

I have corrected this for you and changed the "C" to an "A".  Thank you ryancys for your additional assistance to Ege here, I will also handle the other question for you.

Just to clarify the grading process, Ege, the points you assign are always the same, but the grade you give has a direct impact on the Expert points awarded.  Example, 100 point question with an A grade = 400 expert points, B grade = 300 and C grade = 200, so quite an impact, not to mention that few at this excellent site feel their assistance is anything less than excellent, and for the most part, I wholeheartedly agree.
