Note you can request a specific -format- in the call to -display-:



*************
clear
set obs 10
gen a=2.73456
gen z=uniform()

disp %2.0fc a _n %4.3fc z
*************

Other than that, it is pretty unclear how this problem could arise for you.
No lister has so far been able to reproduce it.

Betreff: st: All entries saved as integers

Hi all,

I suddenly experience that all my entries in stata are saved as integers?
How can that be?
If I for instance type:


. clear

. set obs 10
obs was 0, now 10

. gen a=2.73456

. disp a
2


While if I use some function it works:


. gen z=uniform()
. disp z
.88350743

What am I doing wrong?
Thanks in advance!

Regards
Hans
