dynamic formatting of unit's exponential prefixes during a data output

Is there a way to setup dynamic formatting for units (units of measurement) with automatic using of exponential prefixes during a data display?

Like M (mega), к (kilo), p (pico), n (nano), etc.

I know that Windchill accepts data input with exponential prefixes (for example: 3.2kW = 3200W = 3200000 mW)

and what about data output?

For example:

I have a list of parts which were classified as capasitors. So they have an attribute CAPASITANCE with units "Farad" (F).

The size of commercially available capacitors ranges from around 100 fF (femtofarads, 10e-15 F) to 5 kF (kilofarads, 10e3 F)

Windchill allows to choose only one exponential level of units for all cases of data output.

but the range of data for CAPASITANCE is too wide and some values will be displayed in inconvenient way

It is terrible to work with search report like

3.2 uF
0.0000048 uF
1000000 uF

Is there a way to get this list like bellow?

3.2 uF
4.8 pF
1 F
