Access Int64 cast in float : change documentation, set a warning message and Access 2016

Microsoft Access 2000-2003 does not access big integer

 

Integer — For integers that range from -32,768 to +32,767. Storage requirement is two bytes.


You can find MS documentation here : https://support.office.com/en-us/article/set-the-field-size-ba65e5a7-2e6f-4737-8e72-36b93f966a33


So when you use Alteryx with big integer (e.g Int64 ), it won't work the way you expected and the field will be converted into Double.

So what I propose :

-a change in documentation about this behaviour
-a warning message on the output box when you use Access and you have Int64

-ability to select Access 2016 in order to use Long integer format

Best regards,

Simon
