# Result Formatting

The ADC conversion result can be supplied in two formats: Left justified or right justified. The bit controls the output format as shown in the figure below.

Important: Writes to the ADRES register pair are always right justified, regardless of the selected format mode. Therefore, a data read after writing to ADRES when FM = 0 will be shifted left five places.
