A couple of approaches, depending on what you are trying to achieve.

1. Create a text object and add a slider
2. Use the following expression on the text which will scale the default 0-100 on the slider to 0-999999999
effect("Slider Control")("Slider")*999999999/100

Sliders have a limit of 1000000 as their top value I believe, so another approach isto use a point control as the source which has a higher a limit and link to just the x value for example, then use an expression such as below and keyframe the point control

value = effect("Point Control")("Point")[0]
if (value < 0) {
value = 0;
if (value > 999999999) {
value = 999999999;
