format distinct count

Is there a way to format the numeric result of an aggregation such as distinct count? I would like to add commas to my results and can't figure out how to display.

A way yo solve your problem is:

 

If is only one value to show you can use a Card Visual. (In formatting Options you can made the changes to show the ,)

 

or Create a a measure to made the Distinct Count

 

Carrier-DC=DistinctCount(Table[Carrier]) And Formatting this measure (In modeling)

Hi, you can model your field, column or measure going to Modeling Section:

How do I model for a text field that I am creating a distinct count? I can't seem to figure it out for aggregates. 

If you go to the Data Label in the formatting, you can change the display units to none and the value decimal places to 0 the 1,000 comma appears in the result.

 

 

If you go to the formating options and look at the Data label field. If you change the Display units to 'None' and the Value decimal places from Auto to 0 then the 1000 comma separator is shown in the result. Found this by accident.

just be aware FORMAT converts everything to text

 

Hello - I do not know how to use the format command with a table that shows a distinct count of a text field.  I can't use the modeling format here either. I would like it to display 1,362 instead of 1362 .

Thanks! That sounds like either way would solve my problem! Nancy.
