Hi, so I used the function 'format bank' in the command window before running my code. After running my code, it sends my data into a matrix to the workspace where I can then see it like an excel sheet. Problem is, the workspace data is in scientific notation still. Is there a way to get my workspace data to also be in 'bank format' or 'non-scientific notation?'

In Preferences select Variables and there change the default format for variables.

Walter could have pointed out that this is only a display issue. The data is always stored in the same "format", which is defined by an IEEE spec. The difference is just in how the numbers are displayed on the command line.
