I have a number is scientific format which I want to export to an outside file. I need to limit the length of the number in the variable. I have been trying to use the N[] function to limit the decimal places, but it doesn't seem to work. For example:

N[3.445663356*10^-6,4]
3.44566


N[3.445663356*10^-6,14]
3.44566

Why is the length not changing?
