Sir:

If you are referring to a To File object, then have you changed the output
format from DEFAULT FORMAT to REAL:FIX 2 or some other format?  If you use
DEFAULT FORMAT then you will get full precision (and the usual obnoxious
floating-point far-right inaccuracies.

If there is something else of concern here, please let me know.
