Default Autonumber display in form field


I have a form in my database which uses a query combining 2 tables to display information about a contact. One of the fields in the form displays the ID number of the record from one of the tables involved in the query. This field is the primary key for that table and is an autonumber.

My problem is that where the value in the field is 1000 or above it is displayed as a formula rather than a straight figure - e.g. 1194 is displayed as 1.194E+03. Users do occasionally need to refer to the ID number of the record so this isn't very helpful.

Is there anything I can do to sort this out? I imagine it's something quite simple. I've tried playing around with the format setting for the field on the form but that doesn't seem to do anything.
