You want to display the numbers as shown or modify them? In case you want to modify them, you can use
number = -99.32345; % the number you want to modify
num_str = num2str(number); % convert it to string
[idx,~]=regexp(num_str,'[.]'); % search for decimal point
num_str(idx+2:end) = ; % delete everything from idx+2 till end
number = str2num(num_str) % convert result back to number
You can use this in a loop to modify all of your values.
