I should think that the user would be able to supply all that information via parameters. For example STD: might be specified as

STD: +2 to specify two additional decimal places.

Then the formats associates with the analysis variable provides the desired "precision".

FORMAT weight 5.1 height 3.;

p-values of course are completely different as are their associated statistics. Their display format should be control directly throught the FORMAT statement.
