Hi Ankit,

 

Thanks for the answer. I tried the modelling tab. I am facing the problem for comma seperator in table. It is correctly displayed in all other visuals

Hi shrmehta,

Could you please share the screenshot of the wrong format data in table visuals?

I created mine and it displays well.

By the way, it is also available to change the data type under report View (we need to click on the value column first to make the Modeling available), check if it will have any difference when changing the format or data types.

Hi @v-micsh-msft

 

Here is the data as it is displayed in my report

I checked both data columns and report view and they both display the same formatting. Doesn't change if I change the Data Type from decimal number to whole number

Re: Comma Separator

Hi Shruti,

 

Well this seems to be a little werid.

Hover the mouse cursor at the thousands seperator, would it make any difference regarding the data in table visuals?

By the way, Microsoft Power BI Desktop now have the October update available, download and install to check if this issue would insist:

Hi @v-micsh-msft

 

Hovering shows the same format of comma seperator. I updated to October version and the screenshot I shatred was October version.

Hi @Michael_Shao -

 

Sorry to drudge up this old topic, but I can't find that comma icon anywhere!  Here is what my ribbon bar looks like...

 

Any ideas???

Your screen shot is from the query editor. The comma icon is on the Modeling tab in data view or report view.
