Hello, all.

I am referencing a macro, but I can't figure out how to set the formatting
upon referencing.

Here's what I mean...

local M1R2 = stats[4,1]
file write filename "Here is `M1R2'."


This writes a line to a file that looks like this:
Here is .2835322214434233.

How would I get it to look like:
Here is 0.28.

I just don't know where to put the %9.2f.

Thank you for your help. adam

Try:
