M204.0563  Arithmetic overflow

A value to be stored in a fixed decimal field is greater than the maximum field size. This can result from arithmetic operations using fixed decimal numbers or from moving too large a number into a fixed decimal field.

The largest number that can be stored is approximately 9 * 1018. Note that each decimal place defined for a fixed decimal number reduces the maximum size of the number by a power of 10. For example, if a field is defined with 11 decimal places, the maximum number that can be stored in the field is 9 * 107, or 90000000.

Response: Correct the field definition to accommodate the largest values. It may be appropriate to use floating point variables if very large numbers occur.
