Using the below command with long payment id enabled in monero cli v0.14.0.2 and I still get an error. What is wrong?

transfer 4xxxxxX 4bxxxxXX 2

Error: amount is wrong: 4xxxX 4xxxxX, expected number from 0 to 18446744.073709551615

  • I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the user simply made a simple mistake. Therefore the question seems redundant and the user quickly found the mistake they made anyway.

Reason why is the format:

transfer < receiver_address > < amount > < payment_id >

I had the payment id and amount swapped! Absolutely noob unfriendly...
