Re: Thousand-Separator-and-Decimal-Separator

Helle all,


Thanks to this blogpost I have found a sulution for this problem without changing the locale for the whole Power Bi file. The steps are:


  1. Go to the Power Query-editor and select the column
  2. Change the data type to "decimal number" in the transform menu
  3. Open the advanced editor and add the desired locale string to the "Table.TransformColumnTypes" function.



#"Type gewijzigd" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(#"Kolommen verwijderd",{{"sales.grand_total_month", type number}}, "en-US")

The Thousand Separator could not work, if the currency value contains more than 8 digits. Provide solution for this.

Re: Thousand-Separator-and-Decimal-Separator



We have a power bi report embedded int .net application. We have given ($)United States format for one column in the report. It shows $123,345,678(Right format) in few browsers and machines and $12,33,45,678(wrong format) in few browsers.


Can some one help me to fix this please.
