Mask for numeric fields in Results window for thousands separator

Hello all,

 

When looking at the Results window, I often find it a headache to read the numeric results because of the lack of commas. I understand that incorporating commas into the data itself could make for some weird errors; however, would it be possible to toggle an option that displays all numeric fields with proper commas and right-aligned in the Results window? I am referring to using a display mask to make numeric fields look like they have the thousands separator while retaining numeric functionality (as opposed to converting the fields to strings). 

 

What do you think?

Yes, this functionality would be much appreciated. Especially since copying directly from Alteryx to Excel seems to mess up decimals, so 12.3 become 123. 

 

So no other way around than outputting to Excel which takes extra time when working together with data
