Hopefully, that will work for you.

Hi NCL-Talk,

I am attempting to print a variable on a plot, and I am using the decimalPlaces function. However, the results are not applied the same way. Am I doing something wrong?

Cheers,

Code snippet:
EU_R = decimalPlaces(EU_17(0),2,False)
EU_R2 = decimalPlaces(EU_17(1),2,False)
EU_B = decimalPlaces(EU_17(2),2,False)
EU_M = decimalPlaces(EU_17(3),2,False)
print(EU_R)
print(EU_R2)
print(EU_B)
print(EU_M)
print(EU_17(3))
