Probe Result Summary Value e+00?

Hi,

 

 

I don't really know how to explain this problem but here goes. I'm currently using SolidWorks 2012 Simulation and have been running various FEAs. When I'm interested in the result on a specific area I use the Probe tool.

 

However I can't see the results, well not a significant part of them. I can't see the figure for the exponential! I can see it's 1.6365x10? but not the power the 10 is raised to.

 

There should be a screen capture attached here:

Basically I need to change the width of the column that the numerical result is in. I've tried clicking on the column seperator, double-clicking, click and drag, right click, etc. and nothing seems to work.

 

The only way I can get the numbers I want out is to save the CSV file, open that with Excel and use Excel formulae to five me max, min, average, etc.. So I know (now) that for the above example the maximum was 4.8414E+07. That's quite a lot more than 4.8414e+00!!

 

What am I doing wrong?

 

Any help would be appreciated,

 

Regards,
