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

Move date out one month or year
Use =EDATE(A2,1) for one month later. Use EDATE(A2,12) for one year later.

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.
