I responded directly to a direct note to Kip on this, but in case
others have the same issue, I'll also post. In releases earlier
than 7.0, you generally don't have the option of requesting more
decimal places on the output. Your options are to either use a
procedure that prints more decimals, if one exists, or to rescale
the dependent variable. Rescaling the dependent by multiplying it
by a constant will change the sums of squares by a constant multiple
as well, without changing the Fratios or significance levels.
