I have tried all kinds of formats on numbers and can not stop Access from  scientific notation.  All of the numbers are Double or Decimal.

Is there anyway to totally disable scientific notation in Access 2007

AFAIK, you cannot totally disable scientific notation.

However you can change the formatting of individual controls on your forms and reports, for example by selecting "Fixed" and specifying a number of decimal places.

I have tried using 4 decimal places and it continues to use scientiific notation.  It does not use scientific notation on all the numbers - just some of them.

Just verifying that under the FORMAT tab in the property of your textbox or other control you have:

- Selected Fixed for the format property
- Used 4 for the number of decimal places
