Help with FORMAT

Hello all!


I created a calculated column to format other column with some Net Sales values.



test = FORMAT(Summary[Y5 NS (USD)];"$#,##0,,M")



Basically, if I have a value of $ 17.086.863 , format returns $17M.


But, if I have $ 3.500.000 , format returns $4M.  But I need $3.5M.


Any idea how to solve this?


Best Regards,

I don't know if it's the best solution, but instead of using FORMAT, I created a calculated column with the following expression:


Test3 = "$"&ROUNDDOWN(Summary[Y5 NS (USD)]/1000000;1)&"M"

Hello @parry2k

$3.500.000 become $3,500,00.00M


$17.086.863 become $17,086,863.00M
