CURRENCY Data Type [Automation]

A currency number stored as an 8-byte, two's complement integer, scaled by 10,000 to give a fixed-point number with 15 digits to the left of the decimal point and 4 digits to the right. This representation provides a range of 922337203685477.5807 to -922337203685477.5808. The CURRENCY data type is useful for calculations involving money, or for any fixed-point calculation where accuracy is particularly important.

typedef CY CURRENCY;

The data type is defined as a structure for working with currency more conveniently:

typedef union FARSTRUCT tagCY {
    struct {         
#ifdef _MAC          
        long          Hi;
        unsigned long Lo;
#else                
        unsigned long Lo;
        long          Hi;
#endif               
    };               
    LONGLONG int64;  
} CY;
