How to get scientific notation display in PROC TABULATE?

Hi!

I have a dataset that includes a few p-values that are very small (eg 2.5E-17). When I build a table using PROC TABULATE the values are only shown to 2d.p.

I have tried using a format statement with E., E9.2, E9., E12., Ew. - I've used every combination I can think of but nothing will make the table display anything other than 0.00!

I have gone back and applied the format E9, to the dataset and when I use PROC PRINT it displays the values in scientific notation, but even recreating the table from this data shows 0.00.

Please help!
