You would need to change your variable declaration from Integer to Long.

Have you accidentally left a local declaration in the Sub, like this?
Public gTotalRuns As Long

Sub MySub()
    Dim gTotalRuns As Integer

    gTotalRuns = gTotalRuns + 1
End Sub

You may have to cast the 1 to a long.

gTotalRuns = gTotalRuns + CLng(1)
