Hello

We are running a priori multiple statistical tests on a database of 1000 
patients.  We plan to use Bonferroni's correction for repeated analyses. 
In one instance, the p value for a chi squared test was "Pr = 0.000". This 
test was run with the tabulate command. 

In this instance, I'm not certain how many zero's there are to complete 
Bonferroni's correction. 

How may I find that out? 

Tnank you in advance,
