 August 13, 2013, 03:52 How to output more digits after the decimal point in CFX post #1 Senior Member     Meimei Wang Join Date: Jul 2012 Posts: 492 Rep Power: 7 Hi, When I output temperature from CFX post, it always output the value with only one digit after the decimal point, like 381.1. How could I make it output more digits after the decimal point to have a better precision, like 381.149592? Thanks. __________________ Best regards, Meimei

The function calculator gives many more than that, and most other gizmos give you control over the number format. If you go to scientific or floating point formats you can set the precision.
