## Comma Format count of values in Matrix

I am new to the forum and PBI.  My apologies if I breach any forum protocol.

So below is a matrix visualization i have on a report. The values are a count of a non-numeric field.

I want the counts to be formatted as XX,XXX.   So, for example, 15009 would be 15,009.

I do not know a way, let alone the best, to accomplish?

Best way would be to create a measure that does your count like:

MyCount = COUNT('Table'[Column])

Then, you can highlight this measure and go to the Modeling tab in the ribbon and click the "," button to format it.

I realize this is an old post, but here's another option for anyone else who comes across this (this functionality was added after the original post).

You can select the visual and go to formatting options, then choose "Field Formatting" and select the field you want, then enter a value for decimal places and select apply to total.  There is not an option for "thousands separator" specifically, but populating the decimal places will result in the comma appearing.

@rtemplin  This should be marked as a solution.  It accomplishes exactly what you're asking for and doesn't require the creation of extra measures.
