Apply Format Masks in Results

I see many posts where users want to view numeric or string data as monetary values. I think that it would be friendly to have a masking option (like excel) where you could choose a format or customize one for display.  The next step is to apply the formatting to the workflow so that folks who want to export the data can do so. 

cheers,

Absolutely!  I think that the key implementation point here is to split the presentation mask from the data value (just like excel and Tableau do) so that the value of 0.01 remains the same but could be presented as 1% or 0.01 0r 0.0100 or $ 0.01 depending on the use-case

This would be such a huge help.

This would be a great feature for the Reporting tools!
