Hans,

I believe you need to increase the format width.

For example

. l

     +------------------------------------------+
     |      var1         var2       var3   var4 |
     |------------------------------------------|
  1. | 1.230e+09   1234567890   12345678      1 |
     +------------------------------------------+

. table var4 , c(sum var1 sum var2 sum var3) format(%9.2f)

----------------------------------------------
     var4 |  sum(var1)   sum(var2)   sum(var3)
----------+-----------------------------------
        1 |   1.23e+09    1.23e+09    1.23e+07
----------------------------------------------

. table var4 , c(sum var1 sum var2 sum var3) format(%13.2f)

-------------------------------------------------------
     var4 |     sum(var1)      sum(var2)      sum(var3)
----------+--------------------------------------------
        1 | 1230000000.00  1234567890.00    12345678.00
-------------------------------------------------------


Hope this helps,
Scott
