Number Formatting

An additional “Format” field may be included in either the Defaults or Formulas data tab during import.  When displaying values for a given attribute, the application will first check and see if the Formulas tab provided a format, if not the Defaults tab is checked.  If none exists, the number is formatted using Scientific Notation (E2) with a few exceptions.
