How can I change the number of decimal points displayed in Data Pad columns?

The default settings of the Data Pad within LabChart use the 'General' cell format, which will automatically generate numbers with a large number of decimal points when selecting most parameters.

To configure the number of decimal points displayed, follow the steps below:


  • Open to the Data Pad and click the Column Heading of the column you wish to modify, to open up the 'Data Pad Column Setup':



  • Click the 'Format' button in the bottom-left hand corner to open the Format dialogue
  • Select the 'Fixed' Category from the left hand menu. This option will allow you to change the number of decimal places displayed for that Data Pad column (this will also carry through to the Data Pad miniwindows):




Note: This applies for numerical data only - for other types of data such as Time or Comment Text, the 'General' format (or other relevant format) should be used.
