  It would be nice to see Teradata implement an integer data type that was 8 bytes. This would provide plenty of room for fields of this nature.  



Actually, it wouldn't give you much more than you already have. The maximum value of a decimal(18,0) field is, of course, 999999999999999999; of a long long, 9223372036854775807. That's 19 digits, but you couldn't store a 19-digit number greater than that.
