    Calculating with very large numbers

    Hi,
    I have to calculate the controlnumber in an IBAN bank account number.
    First i have to change the a part of the account numer to a string with only 0 to 9

    This is what is should be:

    Dim Amount1 as ???
    dim Amount2 as ???
    dim amount3 as ???
    dim Temp as string

    I do have the string, say temp ="271011240123456789232100"

    Then i have to do:
    Amount1 = temp / 97 The result must be 2793930310551100919918,5567010309278351

    Amount2 must be the decimals from amount1
    Amount2 = 0,5567010309278351

    Then amount3 = amount2 * 97 Result wil be 54

    Then 98 - amount3 (54) = 44
    (98 is a fix numer)

    44 then is the controlnumber

    How to do this in VB6

    I don't think you can use VB6 with 271011240123456789232100 as it will overflow

    If you use a double it will not result in an overflow but I doubt that you will be able to get that level of precision on such a large number
