Hi... Can anyone help me....

The program that I'm writing now is simulating the Collatz Problem and determine the number of steps taken to reach 1 for any given intger.The process is that if the number is even, divide that number by 2; If the number is odd, multiply that number by 3 and then add 1. the calculation goes on and on until the number is 1

I got this problem:
If the input number is odd then multiply the number by 3 then add 1 to it.

I call the number intNu..
I've type intNu= (intNu*3)+1)
but when i run the program, a message pop up and says i got this overflow problem....
What should i do to make it work....
Thankyou
