To change how all fields display data, you can change an option in the Field tab. In the Overrides tab, you can then override the field options for specific fields.

For example, you could change the number of decimal places shown in all fields by changing the Decimals option. For more information about options, refer to:

Field option example

Let’s assume that our result set is a data frame that consists of two fields: time and temperature.

time temperature
2020-01-02 03:04:00 45.0
2020-01-02 03:05:00 47.0
2020-01-02 03:06:00 48.0

Each field (column) of this structure can have field options applied that alter the way its values are displayed. This means that you can, for example, set the Unit to Temperature > Celsius, resulting in the following table:

time temperature
2020-01-02 03:04:00 45.0 °C
2020-01-02 03:05:00 47.0 °C
2020-01-02 03:06:00 48.0 °C

While we’re at it, the decimal place doesn’t add anything to this display. You can change the Decimals from auto to zero (0), resulting in the following table:

time temperature
2020-01-02 03:04:00 45 °C
2020-01-02 03:05:00 47 °C
2020-01-02 03:06:00 48 °C
