What is the data type of zip field in a table?

in the usp also int..it's happens only if i'm insert 9999999999

The reason is it's exceeding the size of int.

You can store the data in between -2,147,483,648 to 2,147,483,647

in the usp also int..it's happens only if i'm insert 9999999999

i see..
so, is there any validation for that error?
any suggestions?

convert your database feild with bigint instead of int or make it as numeric
