Why do I see 2-digit years and inconsistent number formats?

BI4 defaults to a 2-digit year in date formats, and will show only as many decimals are actually stored with a number (rather than a standard number of decimal places for all amounts). Some of these defaults have already been adjusted at the universe-level, but you can also reformat the elements in your report by right clicking and using the Format Number option under the Format Cell selection. You can also select the Formatting tab > Numbers to change the formatting..
