st: scientific notation in tables |

Hello all. I am using population weights to calculate aggregate figures, which results in fairly large numbers (hundreds of millions). I need to sum columns (variable totals for all observations), and I have tried using a few different summary stat commands, but I keep running into the same problem. My problem is that STATA is displaying everything (in the tables) in scientific notation; that would be fine, but when I copy and paste into Excel, I lose all of the detail. For example, 305,423,221 gets rounded to 305,000,000....and this is not fine. I have changed the formatting for how the variable is displayed in stata, and also for how the variable is stored in stata. Neither has changed the output that I end up with in the result tables. Does anyone have any ideas? Thank you.
