Data displaying as scientific notation when values are close to zero, although formatting is in database?

On one piece of equipment, when the value gets close to zero, the display seems to switch from database to scientific notation. For example, the reading will go from .1 to 9.98E-02. This only happens occasionally and seems to be only when the numbers get close to zero. Looking at trends on my DCS, it appears the correct value should be 0.

 

I checked the formatting and it still is "database". Any ideas on how to make this go away??
