I'm using Stata/MP 11.1 on Windows 7.

Could someone kindly explain the control of the print formats in the following?

.sysuse auto

. mean mpg

Mean estimation                     Number of obs    =      74

--------------------------------------------------------------
             |       Mean   Std. Err.     [95% Conf. Interval]
-------------+------------------------------------------------
         mpg |    21.2973   .6725511       19.9569    22.63769
--------------------------------------------------------------

. set cformat %9.2f

. mean mpg

Mean estimation                     Number of obs    =      74

--------------------------------------------------------------
             |       Mean   Std. Err.     [95% Conf. Interval]
-------------+------------------------------------------------
         mpg |      21.30       0.67         19.96       22.64
--------------------------------------------------------------


. summarize mpg

    Variable |       Obs        Mean    Std. Dev.       Min        Max
-------------+--------------------------------------------------------
         mpg |        74     21.2973    5.785503         12         41                  
      
. format mpg %9.2f

. summarize mpg

    Variable |       Obs        Mean    Std. Dev.       Min        Max
-------------+--------------------------------------------------------
         mpg |        74     21.2973    5.785503         12         41
