Thanks, Paul.  It was helpful because I had never really looked closely 
at the digit block options in the Preferences window.  I'm giving 
NumberFormat at go to display output.

way to specify output display function.  I can't remember what it is.  I 
used to use it to force the display into engineering format instead of 
scientific.  Now I just use // EngineeringForm when I need it.

 I have descriptive statistics that I would like to display as 
13,957,636.8843 (despite the meaninglessness of the digits to the right 
of the decimal) instead of 1.39576 x 10^6?
