Stepper motor stops when ABS_POS register overflows.

Hello, I am trying to rotate my stepper motor 5000000 micro-steps (in 128 micro-steps mode) and its size is bigger than ABS_POS register size (it only has 22 bits in two's complement format).

When the register overflows, the motor stops, instead restart the register. What is the way to rotate more micro-steps than the register size, without stopping the motor?

On the other hand,  Run(DIR, SPD) command only accepts data of 20 bits size ...

Thanks,
