Hello all, quick question

I did some checking and Double is a "double-precision floating-point"
while long is a "long integer"

When would you use double instead of long and single instead of integer?

Thanks!

### Excel Facts

VLOOKUP to Left?
Use =VLOOKUP(A2,CHOOSE({1,2},\$Z\$1:\$Z\$99,\$Y\$1:\$Y\$99),2,False) to lookup Y values to left of Z values.
Well, probably when you didn't want to use an integer.

Single/Double are different from Long Integer/Integer, the latter are for whole numbers, the former for numbers with decimal parts.

ah should of known better thanks!
I think i need to be slaped for that question
