I was assigned to work on the aesthetics of a table that shows collected data as string.
I want to show the numbers with 4 digits percision, but whenever the number is bigger the 10e-5, the output will include all the zeros, and only the four digits, e.g:
x=0.000123456;
y=0.0000123456;
solx=num2str(x,'%.4G');
soly=num2str(y,'%.4G');
solx
solx = '0.0001235'
soly
soly = '1.235E-05'
Is there any way that I can get solx to be formatted like soly?

soly=num2str(y,'%.3E')
solx=num2str(x,'%.3E')

Simon is correct.
The only conditional formatting that MATLAB supplies in any released version, is what is done automatically by "format short" or "format long", or done by a %g format for sprintf() or fprintf() or compose() -- none of which permit tuning the boundaries of when values are to be shown in which varient.
