I have a SharePoint list where a column contains numbers but those numbers are shown as:

Example: "1,181,180" instead of "1181180" (this is what I need).

I created the list importing from excel.

How can I format this column so I can see it without decimal places and 1000 separator as "." using JSON?

If you are using Number data type, you can remove thousand operator from column settings:

  1. Go to SharePoint list
  2. Click on column header/name
  3. Select Column settings
  4. Select Edit

enter image description here

It will open column settings panel in modern experience like below. If you don't see the Use thousands separator on panel. click on More options.

To remove thousands operator using JSON, use below JSON:

  "$schema": "https://developer.microsoft.com/json-schemas/sp/v2/column-formatting.schema.json",
  "elmType": "div",
  "txtContent": "@currentField"
