I am building something for my students that I would like to be able to handle very large number. It seems like if the number is about 20 digits, access simply rounds it. Is there a way to allow it to treat this large number normally?

FYI, it is an unbound field on the form. No way to change anything on the table.

Is the rounding occurring in the text box or table ?
Are you entering a decimal point or just an integer ?

I can enter N number of characters in an unbound text box with no rounding ...

try using the afterUpdate event of the textbox

private sub textboxname_afterupdate()

me.textboxname=cstr(me.textboxname)

end sub


leave the format property of the textbox to BLANK
