Open original thread
Guys I have made a convertor that converts a decimal number to a octal number in VB.NET,but it converts only upto 7 digits of decimal number to Octal.If it exceeds 7 digits "Memory Overflow" message is displayed.How To solve this problem guys?

Here Is The Code:
Dim s1,s2 As Atring
Dim i1,i2 As Integer

i1=Convert.ToInt64(s1, 10)
s2=Convert.ToString(i1, 8)
i2=Convert.ToInt64(s2, 8)

but this code is limited only up to 7 characters of input.
