    Commas wreck everything when importing/exporting data to csv files and SQL databases. This is a system/language command character.
    Adding commas, the way you are asking, is probably never going to happen.

    Commas for numbers of 1000 or greater are possible in a Custom PDF (we employ several customs) but seem difficult or impossible on the "Designer" Version of the PDF Output.  We need this functionality.  Commas cannot be the only reason why one is forced into a custom endeavor.  Thank you, Dave Cramer - Penn Line Service

    Hi Dave,

    I understand your frustration with commas in large numbers, it is easier to read the output when a comma is provided for context. I don't recommend making any changes to an app that has a custom PDF but for the future, there may be a little work around that I have used before in different contexts. If the number field that allows decimals shows the comma on the PDF, perhaps we can use a number field after the calculation fields to re-enter the output that the calculation provides. I understand this is not an elegant solution and does require a momentary pause to re-enter that information, it could be a work around solution in the meantime. I would love to hear other ideas or solutions!
