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 

 

Did not work :S

 

$3.500.000 become $3,500,00.00M

 

$17.086.863 become $17,086,863.00M
