Thanks Leif.

Suppose you entered the following calculation (not likely to happen, but 
exaggeration for the point of emphasis, right.)

999999999999999999999999999999.999999999999999999999999999999 / 
        (30 digits and 30 decimal places)       divided by (30 digits and 
30 decimal places)

The value would be converted to a character string that is 60 digits long 
divided by a 60 digit number.  Clearly the answer is approx. 1, but 
because the fields are longer than the maximum number of digits allowed in 
a numerical field, how would you programmable divide this value.  You 
would have to break it up some how.
