Default Numeric Display in Text Box

Dear All,

I write in VB6. I have a problem of figure display in Textbox. When I enter figure in textbox say 2183889222.34 and another figure in another textbox say 4783845689.45 to be added together so that the result is displayed in another textbox. The result is displayed in an exponential format. What could be the problem.

Use the VB function CDec().
Text3.Text = CDec(Val(Text1.Text) + Val(Text2.Text))
This will force the result of the addition to be displayed in decimal format. The down side it that it will use more memory and you will run into overflow errors when the numbers get very large. This is because the decimal data type stores the number with a much higher precision than a single or double, the trade off is that it can not store the much larger numbers.
