st: Reporting proper format of numbers in a graph |

Hello Statalist, I'm currently including some correlations in the notes of a graph. I want the format of this correlation to include just 3 decimals. So far, my approach is to compute the reported correlation in the following way - corr x y local cxy=round(1000*r(rho))/1000 twoway(line x y), note("corr(x,y)= `cxy' ") - For most of the graphs I'm doing this procedure works fine, but in a few cases the graph note reports correlations that look like 0.6750000000000001 . This rounding error is killing the aesthetic of my graph! Does anyone know another way to handle this problem so that I can always report three-decimal correlations? Thanks, Benjamin * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
