Title: Scientific Notation Problem
Hi Everyone,

This would seem like such an easy question, but I can’t seem to find an answer anywhere online or in books.

I have data for the 2000 US Presidential election by counties in the US. All I want to do is to get a total vote for
Each candidate.  When I use the total command (total gore), this is the result I get.

Total estimation                    Number of obs    =    3155

 --------------------------------------------------------------
             |      Total         Std. Err.     [95% Conf. Interval]
   -------------+------------------------------------------------
      gore |   5.12e+07    3210227      4.49e+07    5.75e+07
--------------------------------------------------------------

My question is: how can I get the totals to appear without scientific notation? I have already tried reformatting the
Variables and that doesn’t work. I’ve spent two days now, off and on, trying to figure this out and feel a bit foolish
Given that it seems like a simple question.

Thanks for any help or advice you can provide.

Bob
