Consider a table


I want to convert it into a table where all the numbers are only with 4 digits after the comma, and then export it (to save size of the output file).

This is what I do:

tabbSh={NumberForm[#[[1]], 4],NumberForm[#[[2]], 4]}&/@tabb

However, the elements of the resulting table become non-numeric. Could you please tell me how to fix this problem?

    $\begingroup$ When you say 4 digits, do you want a rounding or truncation? e.g., Round[tabb, 0.0001] $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ If you just want to truncate digits, you can try something like: foo[x_, n_] := N[FromDigits[RealDigits[x, 10, n]], n] $\endgroup$
