Cannot get numbers to format with commas

I'm starting to learn Power BI to gauge it's possible used for my company. I've been looking around and find tutorials to understand some of the inner workings. Current I'm following the tutorial here.

 

The issue I'm having is when I create card visualizations the numbers appear unformatted without commas. How can I get them to format with commas?

Is a bug format to PBI; to solve this create a measure

 

Count-Amount= Count(Amount)

 

and use this in a card  and format.

Thank you SO much for this answer. I've been searching for days on how to get this done, but didn't realize I had to select the field first, then go to modeling in the PowerBI ribbon. I appreciate it!

That's pretty close, but for some reason that count field isn't being formatted
