Formatting Calculated SharePoint field

I have a basic SharePoint custom list with several calculated columns, here is one of them


By default it shopws up in the PowerApps created screens as 12345.000000. When I add a format command such as Text(ThisItem.ProdTotal,"[$-en-US]#,###.00") it does not seem to have any effect and still displays with 6 decimal places and no thousand separator.


I am sure I am missing some obvious detail, but it seems to elude me at the moment. If you can correct my approach so the result is to have 12,345 instead of 12345.000000 I am open to ideas

Is there a possibility to format a number calculated column independently of the browser language? Or react on the browser language and change the format expression?

Found the solution: I needed to add the language tag to the Value function as well to ensure that the value being read is the same for German and EN browser languages and then format the value while defining the result language as well:
