Hello everyone,

I have a variable called slope with has around 10 decimal points

so I do replace slope=round(slope,.01) to round it off to the nearest
2nd decimal place.

Then I do local output=slope[_N]

Trouble is EVEN after I do the round off I still get 10 decimal places
when I display the local macro " output " in a note in a graph.

Can someone tell me what I can do to fix this ?

Thank you,
Ashim.
