    I have a problem with my SPSS v19 for MAC. I cannot see the numbers as 0.052 but only as .052 which is not very professional.

    It would be very nice to see decimal numbers preceded by zero in both "data view" and on the axis of the graphs.

    Can someone help me?

    Thank you everyone.

    It is a general rule that there is no zero before decimal point before. Therefore it is more professional to omit the zero.

    But regarding your question, I have been using SPSS for couple of years and I don't think you can change it with in the program as I can't find it nor google it. But if i.e you look at the apa manual it says:


    I have always just changed it afterwards

    See for futher reading on why:
