Oleksandr,

maybe all values of id exceed the range of the integer type (-32,767
to 32,740; whelp datatypes) if so try recasting it to long. In case
that does not work either then you might have all values staying
outside the intervall  -2,147,483,647 to 2,147,483,620. This could
happen with a double variable, at least from what I understand.
