Note that this is simply _displaying_ the coefficient using a small number of decimal places. The actual coefficients are stored in the fit object in double precision; save/export the fit object to the workspace and use the COEFFVALUES function to retrieve them. The CONFINT function will give you the confidence bounds. You may also need to change the display FORMAT.
