Changing the number of decimal places in a Summary Table

Hi,
I'm using EG to create summary tables for a regular job I have to do. However, my output isn't exactly as I would like it...Is there a way of changing the amount of decimal places of the data in the summary tables? At the moment I have very large numbers given to 2dp - it's bit stupid!
I can get the output I want with a code node but ideally I would like to be able to do this just using the summary table task...Is this possible?
Thanks

If you are using the summary statistics task assign the task roles as required then under the basic statistics option change the value of "Maximum decimal places".

If it the summary table task, there's a TON that's possible. For formatting, you need to be in the task dialog (if you started with the wizard, right-click and do an open in advanced view). Under the tables pane, right-click on the statistic (e.g. Sum) for the column, select data value properties, and that's where you can format data values for that information.

FYI, in EG 4.2 there is an option to apply a format to the table in the second step of the Summary Tables wizard. There you can reduce the number of decimal places displayed without having to go into the advanced view of the task.
