Question about Texas Instruments BA-II Plus Calculator

I have a TI BA-II calculator NOT THE BA-II PLUS and it's in a mode where no digits to the right of the decimal point are displayed. How do I return to the "normal" mode?

Your BA II PLUS stores numeric values internally to an accuracy of 13 digits. However, the numbers it displays depends on the number of decimal places to which you have it set (choice of 0–9 or floating decimal). To set the number of decimal places displayed to three: hit [2ND][FORMAT][3][ENTER]This setting also continues indefinitely (even though the calculator is turned off and on) until it is changed.

14! is an eleven-digit number. The only way your ten-digit calculator can display that number is to convert it to scientific notation. A twelve-digit calculator such as a TI-89 can display that number, but 23! is a 23-digit number and even a TI-89 cannot display that number.
