This is for SP2010. I have a custom content type which has a column defined as a Number column type. For other business reasons, it does need to be a Number type, so switching it to "Single line of text" is not an acceptable option.

The trouble I have is, when this column is rendered in a form, a list, ect., the column is displayed using a comma for a thousands separator. My data is always a six-digit number, but is not intended to be displayed with a comma.

I see nowhere any means of supressing the display of a comma. I'm not aware of any "formatNumber()" sort of options for lists, but sure wish there was.

Is there any means of of forcing the display of a Number column to supress those commas?


One way to address the comma appearing on a list view would be to add a calculated column that returns the number column's value as a single line of text, then show the calculated column in the list view.

This would not address the comma appearing on the display form.

You can use conditional formatting for data views.

You could also create another column that holds the text value.
