Problem: The maximum value an INFO type I item can store

Solution or Workaround

Description:

What is the maximum value an integer item can hold?

Solution:

INFO stores integer items as character strings and can hold values up to 16 digits long (max = 9999999999999999).

ARC stores integer items in a 4-byte binary format. The largest number a 4-byte binary item can hold is 2,147,483,647 (which is 2 to the 31st power minus 1).

If you need to store a larger number, use a floating point item (F) or numeric item (N) instead.
