Numeric Format

If you have values, such as 23.5, that you want formatted as a monetary figure, like $23.50, you would use the Numeric Format procedure. This formats values using decimals, group separators, and currency symbols. View YouTube tutorial here and Vimeo tutorial here.

1. Add a variable for the value (23.5 in this example).

Note: In this example, the same variable in steps 4 and 7 is selected. There might be unpredictable results if the variable is used elsewhere in the project. If that is the case, it is recommended that the user create a new variable and set the formatted value to this new variable (right-clicking the variable and selecting Add Function > Set Value), leaving the variable used in step 4 unchanged.
