I'm having issues when exporting data to a csv file via the fopen method. Any large float (above about 20million) is being converted into engineering units. Not a problem if the destination prog was Excel but it's not and it's error as a string.

I'm currently writing a hack to covert big numbers into integers, losing the accuracy but not much (they're currency values).

Thanks for any help,
