Number format

The format of numeric data can be changed in the Data explorer, {Batch query](aa1ab704-8c9e-4df2-b6ea-aa34b79cd79a), and Data sampling windows.

Numeric formatting is only applied to floating point values, and is never applied when data is written to a data source such as a database or spreadsheet, as it is for display purposes only.

In addition to the format type, the precision can be changed.

The following formats are available:

  • None - No formatting is applied.
  • General - The most compact of either Fixed or Scientific.
  • Number - Integral and decimal digits, group separators, and a decimal separator.
  • Fixed - Integral and decimal digits.
  • Scientific - Exponential notation.
  • Percentage - Number multiplied by 100, and displayed with a percent sign.
