@Randy, I believe increasing the range of integer field entails more than just that. Python's integer has a maximum value of sys.maxint. Which depending on the operating system you are using can be 2147483647 (Windows 64 bit, 10 digit figure), 9223372036854775807 (Linux 64 bit), or other.
Even if you use char field as suggested by @Umarshankar, you need to be aware of that limitation if the integer field is to be used in calculation.
