Decimal points in investment reports?

The number of shares stored in Quicken is correct and saved to the appropriate number (4) of decimal places for my mutual funds, however when I run a report out of Quicken, it only exports 3 decimal places. Is there a way that I can increase the precision of the reports? Takes lot of time to fix the exports.

    Check your preferences settings for Reports.  There is an option there on number of digits after the decimal to use in reports.

    Thanks - was that always there? I am sure I have had this problem for years and assumed it would never be fixed so I stopped looking in the preferences...

    I know what it was now - as I got further into my tax calculations.
    It was the EXCHANGE RATE decimal places that I can't change - it only shows 2 decimal places which is insufficient - I have at least 4 decimal places entered.

    What "exchange rate"?  Currency?  MF trade?

    Yes - currency exchange rate, specifically USDCAD. If I dump out a report of my USD account transactions the exchange rate only comes out with 2 decimal places. I need the full 4+ decimals in order to do some of the calculations that I do. Can't seem to figure a way to get more precision.
    When I noticed the mutuals were only 3 decimal places, it reminded me of a precision error I have had for a long time - but it was currency exchange rate, not the shares.
