Subject   st: Controlling display format for -addlabel- option on -histogram-

A colleague was producing some bar charts using -histogram-, using the -addlabel- option to add the actual values at the top of each bar. (I find this a futile exercise, but some folks like it.)

He found that his labels were being added with two or even three places of decimals. For the life of me I cannot find how to use the - histogram- graph dialogue to control the display format. Can it be done?
