Format number with the thousand separator in auto format mode


The client customise the abbreviation for big numbers, but want the exact value when it's under a million (with thousand separator).
The KPI chart doesn't display correctly the value. 


In the main script, the variables are on the ThousandSep & the NumericalAbbreviation.

SET DecimalSep='.';
SET MoneyThousandSep="'";
SET MoneyDecimalSep='.';
SET MoneyFormat='# ##0.00 CHF;-# ##0.00 CHF';
SET TimeFormat='hh:mm:ss';
SET DateFormat='DD.MM.YYYY';
SET TimestampFormat='DD.MM.YYYY hh:mm:ss[.fff]';
SET FirstWeekDay=0;
SET BrokenWeeks=0;
SET ReferenceDay=4;

When the number format is set to Auto. The value is displays with the abbreviation (more than 1 million)2020-11-04 12_08_09-20201022_ Qlik Sense .pngThis is correct


When the number format is set to Auto. The value is displays with the abbreviation (less than 1 million, no abbreviation)

2020-11-04 12_14_11-20201022_Qlik Sense .pngNo thousand separator


Any ideas to this 'problem'? or a way to fix it? 
Thanks for your help.
