What about just having a numeric64, or changing numeric to support moving to 64bit sizes when necessary and supported by the platform? Exactly how much faster would it *really* be? Have you tested it? At what point does it become a 'winning' change? I'm not sure about 'money' in general but these claims of great performance improvments over numeric just don't fly so easily with me. numeric isn't all *that* much slower than regular old integer in the tests that I've done. Thanks, Stephen
