Affected Products:

CI-6870 DataStudio - Single User

Problem/Symptom:
Precision is not preserved when exporting to Excel.

PASCO Solution:
Changing the precision of the data in a display does not effect the precision of the data that is exported. You must change the precision in the data properties window for the data set to have it reflected in the data that is exported:
  1. Double click on the data set that you would like to export in the Data window in the upper-left of your screen.
  2. Adjust the "precision" to reflect the number of digits that you would like to appear after the decimal place.
  3. Select File/Export Data...
