Consider the following scenario. I have a data column that contains a large list of numeric, whole number values. Some of these values are comparatively small (i.e. 1,000) while others are very large (i.e. 10,000,000,000).
What I am desiring is that smaller numbers (less than 1,000,000) should be displayed as a standard number, with commas. Larger numbers should be abbreviated by showing an M for Millions, a B for Billions, possibly a TR for Trillions,etc., next to a factored number of the actual value. Below are a few examples of the type of formatting that I am looking for:
| Actual Value | Display Value | +---------------+---------------+ | 100,000 | 100,000 | | 999,999 | 999,999 | | 1,000,000 | 1.0 M | | 1,250,000 | 1.3 M | | 5,000,000,000 | 5.0 B |
Is there an easy way to do this without having to create a formatting function?
