If I use MOD in Powerbasic (Dos) for the number of

1960092520030605, I get 115.

If I do the same thing in Lotus or Excel, I get 31 instead.

Yes, I know R = Num1 MOD Num2 yields the remainder, but shouldn't

the remainder be same no matter which application is doing the

calculating? I am concerned I do not understand MOD as well

as I had believed I did. I wonder if my number is too large for

accuracy?

Thanks.
