I have a section of code that produces answers in standard form (i.e. 1.527000e+03 ) and would like it in normal decimal notation (i.e. 1527). I have tried things such as format long and format short, but these do not work. As well as this, I have attempted dividng the answer by 1000 but this still gives the number in standard form (1.527e00).
Any help would be appreciated!

format long g

The long g format cannot display values like 1e61 oer 2e-38 in decimal notation. So please show some examples of values and explain, how you want to display them.
If you want a sprcific output, use frprintf instead of Matlab's automagical output.

if they are all integers
Or int64 for larger range
