exceeding 9,999,999

Post by relic » Tue Mar 08, 2005 6:10 pm

I was wondering if there is a piece of code you can use in qb45 that will make it possible to print a number beyond 9,999,999? I noticed that while you can print 10000000, whenever you have a variable that prints the same number, it comes up as: 1E+07
thanks for any help.

:) like this:

Code: Select all

num# = 10000000
PRINT num#
put the # on you variable to keep it from doing scientific notations.. :wink:

More specifically, # defines a number as double-precision. Eventually you will hit a point where those go into xE+yy form as well, except it'll say xD+yyy instead.

You could also have done the following:

DIM num AS DOUBLE

or:

DEFDBL N

The first one declares num as a variable of type double. The second one automatically makes any variables starting with the letter N double precision.

Shouldn't you make it a Long type (num&)?

In the library section, there is a lib called "BigINT" that can handle huge #s, not just ints though. :lol:
