I am capturing long numbers of around 20-30 digits long and I want to capture this into a mySQL database. I am currently using int(50) to capture this but as soon as the character count goes over 10 it defaults to this number in the database when added:
First I am wondering why this is happening and defaulting to THAT number?
Second How do I fix this problem ( I am sure I have done this same thing in the past the exact same way and it has worked perfectly).
Thanks - Look forward to your answers,
