The data that is stored in a workspace can be in different formats.The short format displays decimal values upto 4 digits.
format short; % After executing this command all decimal values will be displayed upto 4 decimal values.

"The data that is stored in a workspace can be in different formats."
Numeric data classes do not store any format information. Number formatting is entirely a property of the displaying mechanism, and and is not stored anywhere as part of any number array in any workspace.
