Message Has anyone discovered any documentation defining short integer and long integer field types?

I've searched through old User Forum strings looking for definitions to the various field types available when defining new fields. It seems that the answer for the short and long integer types has not yet been unvieled.

Message For anyone else looking, I found fdocumentation in the desktop help. Look in the TOC under "geodatabases" then under "Creating Items in a Geodatabase." There you will find "ArcGIS data types" with explanations of the various data types.
