I would like my numbers to show up as 100,000 or 300,000, but they only show up as 100 or 300 after entering. When I click on the box, the true number shows up. New to using formulas, but willing to learn what I need to do! Thanks

Is the form field a text field?

Scroll Long Text: Compensates for text that extends beyond the boundaries of the text field.

Did you set format of the field?

While in 'Prepare form' tool -> right click on field and select 'properties' -> click on 'format' tab, here you can set which format you want,number of decimals, separator style...etc take a look at photo for example:

I've used the text field (format tab) to set the properties I want, but there isn't anything to pick to make the numbers show how I want them?

When I click on the field after entering a number, it shows properly. When I click in a different box, it goes to a different format.
