I need the precise sum of areas for a polygon layer, where I have the area values in an attribute. When I use the Statistical Summary window it shows the sum in exponential notation:
Statistic Value Count 232 Sum 6.68428e+06 Mean 28811.6 Median 19993.4
At first I thought it was a display issue related to column width, but no. And I hoped that copy-paste might reveal the true value, but also no.
The Area values have 11 decimal places. Can I get the sum to be the same degree of precision as the original data? (I don't actually need 11dp, but I would like to choose for myself the precision to report, rather than have QGIS dictate!)
There is an excellent answer to a previous related question (Summing data from column in Attribute table) but it does not mention this issue. I am using QGIS 3.10.10.
