VBA Code returns "Error 6' Overflow error when array element is greater than 1010

Hello Guys!

I am having a problem with my code below. This code extracts data from a text file.
The part where the error occurs is on the 'Converts the quantity from string to integer data type
part of the code.

It returns an overflow error. It works fine for text files with lines up to 1010, but greater than that the error happens.

Do you guys have ideas to resolve this? I have declared the data type as LONG already...

Thanks to your help!!!!

Rich (BB code):
SrtTemp_current(I) = CLng(snumber_current(I))
