In the case of REDUCING the number of decimal places - generally a
very wise thing to do - the SPSS editor provides a feature to ROUND
any figures in the output window (Base Manual p91). I think Dave is
underselling the product in suggesting this is a poorperson's solution.
I've used this feature to improve the output from other programs (nothing
to do with SPSS) before merging the output into reports.
