Formatting exported text data

Asked by Bill
on 19 Jul 2013

I need to export integers not in the form of scientific notation, for example 1.204218e+007. However matlab insists on exporting it like this when I write it to a .txt file.

dlmwrite('combine.txt',com,'delimiter',' ','precision',7,'newline','pc');

How can i fix this problem?
