I am using rexx to calculate sum of numbers from input files. The input file have 8 digits and I have assigned a variable to get these numbers. So when I try to display this sum of numbers I am getting the error message saying that "IRX0041I Error running SMSNEW, line 50: Bad arithmetic conversion"

Actually my program struk in addition of below two numbers,

3.01187304E+9 2.97038453E+9

How to handle this? Is there any datatype in rexx to store big numbers instead of assigning to this in variables?

Rexx is a typeless language. Use the NUMERIC instruction to choose your desired form. Use TRACE I to examine the flow of execution and ensure that adding those two numbers is really the problem; I have my doubts.
