In QS the measure expression format how to make it default as number instead of auto ?

HI All

each time I create a measure , I alway need to change Auto to number .

As if it is auto , the number display will with out comma and it is not align and hard for user to read , so I need to change to number, only when i Compute in GP % , other then that most of the time is number.

any way to default to number ?

Hi Vas

I aware of the formatting function , the developer should know the 90% of the measure are number and it should set number as default.

May be this is another bug.

And exactly that the point you try to achieve. If you want to auto default to number your measure, you can write format which you want to see in expression.

Some time ago i got this point and just write my own format as i want.
