Display different field in Power BI Desktop and Power BI Online

Hi there,

 

I have been publishing a report from Power BI Desktop to Online and have troubles with a number field. The original field in the Desktop version displays a number with the value 41,49 EUR. When I upload the report to Power BI Online the number switches the comma and displays the value of 4.148,50 EUR. This however does not happen right away, but after some time. See pictures attached. Does anyone know where the problem potentially is?

 

Thanks,
Dorothee

Re: Display different field in Power BI Desktop and Power BI Online

Hi @Dorothee123 ,

 

I have seen this when the browser/PC has settings on how to format numbers that is different than the report.  This is based on the computer though.  Is this happening in all browsers?  Is this happening for all users?

 

I would appreciate Kudos if my response was helpful. I would also appreciate it if you would Mark this As a Solution if it solved the problem. Thanks!

Hi @Dorothee123 ,

 

 The issue is probably due to an interaction with the users locale and the server locale of the PBI-Service Server.

Try using custom strings to see if you can solve this problem:
