I am using ArcGIS 10 desktop and I have a feature class layer with a large number of Float and Double fields (over 1000). I would like to set these all to display with scientific format when I look at the attribute table. I can do this manually by going to the l"ayer properties" window "Fields" tabsheet but that will take all afternoon. Is there are way to do this automatically with python?
