Engineering Format


Engineering format is an output display option.  This option is very similar to the Exponential format in which a value is displayed as a number followed by E and the integer exponent value, e.g., 1.234E06.  In Engineering format, the exponent value will always be an integer multiple of 3, i.e., E0, E3, E6, etc.  The number provided is the number of significant figures.
