I have several columns being imported as double where the format is X.XXXXXX0N where 0N is the exponential
How can I show the number as it is (not Exponential) I am not interested in rounding the number.
secondly is it possible, without rounding the number to limit the values shown after the comma but keeping the full number precision?
In a Prepare recipe, you can try to reformat your column using the Formula processor with something like:
... X being the number of digits you want to show (it helps if your digit length is the same across rows)
This is changing the type into a string assuming
which generated an error.
I do not need to change format I need just sot SEE lees precision but keep the number as a double with the full prevision stored in the table
thanks Vince for the work around
I hope DataIku fixes this gap
I understand a workaround but the user should be able to review and change how data appears without changing the format of underlying data or creating multiple columns for each format needed....
every time have to deal with amounts i have to carry twice the columns in each table...
without having to round or convert the underlying number in the table
viewing 123,234,324.35 or123,234,324.34 (do not mind the visual rounding)
were the number is actually 123234324.348763456734 and is not rounded for calculation purposes
rather than viewing 1.2323432434876345E8
