Comma Separator Formats in Power BI

Hi Guys, I am new to Power BI Community and this is my first question which I ll be asking in the Power BI Community. So Ihave changed the 'Digit Grouping' settings in my control panel so that my comma separators follow Indian System. In excel the format is working correctly. But in Power BI, the comma format is working only in the Data View Mode and not in the visualization. Please help me with my issue.

 

And for some reason I am not able to uplaod screenshots here.

Hi @harshb_141195 ,

This is by design. Power BI Desktop or Service does not support reading formatting setting from Windows. The only localization setting that we use from Windows is the OS language.

Hi @harshb_141195 ,

 

Can "regional setting" help you solve the problem?

Re: Comma Separator Formats in Power BI

@amitchandak  and @Icey  Thanks for your response. I have changed the Regional Settings as well as the Digit Grouping settings from control panel but still it is not showing the correct format in the visualization but it is showing in the data view. If there is something else I need to do, please help with it.
