Does anyone know how to make stata show numbers which are higher than 1 million?

You need to adjust the format. See -help format-.

Whether a format takes effect may depend on what facility is outputting the values. I works for -list-. For -display-, you need to put in formats preceding the item to be displayed, e.g., display %15.2f var1[2]
