Overflow Run-time error

Hi,

I would like to get the rest of division very big number with 30 digits
for example 116022440020551020156789252100

- I don't want to represent this numer by any approximation in the form 1.16022440020551E+29
- I received Run-time error '6' Overflow

Code:

Dim rest As Long

rest = 1.16022440020551E+29 Mod 97

If I change

rest = 1.16022440020551E+29 - Int(1.16022440020551E+29 /97) *97

always the result is equal 0

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You cannot handle such huge number directly in VB

If you do not want approximations biggest datatype is Currency

with values between – 922.337.203.685.477,5808 and 922.337.203.685.477,5807.


If you need more you must develop your own operators.


Cheers
