I have some data plotted with ListPlot. The values on the y axis range from -411230.40068*10^9 to -411230.20005*10^9.

Mathematica, when plotting the data, shows me on the y axis only the value -4.1123*10^14 for every tick. Is there any way to make him show the numbers in powers of 10^9, and with 10 digits of precision? I tried with Ticks but didn't get so far.

Thank you

EDITED:

A sample on request :)

This is what I use to plot them:

ListPlot[Transpose[Thread[#] & /@ data2], PlotRange -> {-4.112303*10^14, -4.112302*10^14}, Joined -> True, Mesh -> All, PlotStyle -> PointSize[0.002]]

"some data" - I can't seem to find it anywhere in your post... –  J. M. Jun 12 '13 at 14:30

Can you show us what you tried with Ticks? –  Jonathan Shock Jun 12 '13 at 16:30
