I have used stringer connect in the past and it seemed that my traverse shots (which went to four decimal places 0.0000) that were in my raw file were converted to a fbk file and it held the decimal places. Now when I use it, the program rounds my shots to three decimal places (0.000) which changes the locations just slightly. I don't think I changed any settings deliberately. How can I get my four decimal places back?

Thanks for the response. I'm actually looking for the rounding settings for the Stringer Connect program. I realize my question is a little out of place, this being a Civil 3D discussion group. But I can't seem to find an answer anywhere and I know some people who frequent this discussion group also use Stringer Connect. So I thought I'd give it a shot.
Which version are you using?
I'm not sure if there is a program or part there of to set the decimal places in stringer connect.
There is a file called numeric.dat which stores the settings used by stringer connect located either here
Open the file numeric.dat in notepad and change the number on the first line from 3 to 4. This is the number that controls the decimal places.
