Something like:


= Table.TransformColumnTypes(#"Changed Type with Locale", try each {{"Patrimonio", type number}}, "en-US" otherwise {{"Patrimonio", type number}})



Thanks in advance

Hi,  @Fcoatis 


Sorry. Two formatting types can’t exist in the number type field at the same time, the formatting affects the entire field. Only text types can.


Best Regards

Is the difference between the numbers the presence of "," or "." in the number?  If so, you could just Replace Values ahead of the data type change to avoid the error.
