Dear Sir/Madam,

Please be kind enough to provide me with the maximum length allowable for a decimal data type that C# allows in a desktop application.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,
Indunil Sanjeewa

It is 128 bit which according to the documentation is
(-7.9 x 10^28 to 7.9 x 10^28) / (10^(0 to 28))
