I have imported data from xls into a double array variable called price,I have gone onto the variable window to change the format of the column to short fixed decimal however the format of the column does not change, some values are still scientific looking. I have tried the code format short but this only fixes the command window results, my issue is when I plot the price on a chart it shows the scienfific scale and not the actual numbers, I have tried ytickformat('%.2f') but this does not work for me. What am I doing wrong?

You probably want the Exponent property of the Numeric Ruler class (R2015b and later versions).
set(gca, 'Exponent',2)
may work.
Experiment to get the result you want.
