How to fetch or store a BIGINT using dbExpress and Delphi 2005

Jon
Since there is no native support for 64bit integers in dbExpress, it
is not trivial to fetch a BIGINT from SQL 2k.

If it is possible, how can a BIGINT be fetched using TParam or TField?

Any help appriciated

If you create persistent fields, doesn't it get created as a
TFmtBCDField?

I know nothing about Delphi, but perhaps you can CAST the bigint values to
varchars when you return them from MSSQL?
