Formula Autocorrect based on en-AU location is creating an error

I am trying to enter a text formula to put a dollar sign in front of a numeric value Text(ThisItem.Price, "$ ##.00") but the system must recognise that I am in Australia and keeps autocorrecting it to Text(ThisItem.Price, "[$-en-AU]$ ##.00") which then gives me an error "Language code 'en-AU' not supported'. If I delete the [$-en-AU] the system keeps putting it back. Would you believe this is part of the PowerApp Learn tutorial - unit 3 of 5. Not looking forward to setting up a Date field or Distance Mesurement.

Hi @APD_Karl ,

If you use Text function within app to format a Number to a currency type value, the Language tag within the Text function would be converted into local language tag automatically.

 

Based on the needs that you mentioned, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

 

In addition, there is no way to turn off the Autocorrect mechanism within the Text function in PowerApps currently.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

Hi @APD_Karl ,

Currently, the "Language code 'en-AU' is not supported within the Text function in PowerApps. When you run your app in Australia, the Language tag within yourText(...) formula within your app would be converted into the local language tag automatically.

More details about the available Language code supported within PowerApps, please check the following article:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/functions/function-language#language-ta...

 

If you want the Text(...) formula to recognize that you are in Australia and keeps autocorrecting it into a correct value when you run your app in Australia, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

As an alternative solution, please consider take a try with the following formula:

Set the Text property of the Label to following formula:

If(
   Right(Language(), 2) = "US",
   "$ " & Round(ThisItem.Price, 2),     /* <-- Display as US Currency Symbol e.g. $ 1200.45 */
Right(Language(), 2) = "AU",
"A$ " & Round(ThisItem.Price, 2) /* <-- Display as Australia Currency Symbol e.g. A$ 1200.45 */ )

Please consider take a try with above solution, then check if the issue is solved.

Is this new formula all I place in the formula bar (I just get a blank feild when I do). Or does it go before / after the original formula "Text(ThisItem.Price, "$ ##.00")" (That didn't work either), Or does it go somewhere within the original formula?

 

I don't even need it to say A$, just $ would be fine. I only want to progress to the next stage of the PowerApps Learning Module.

 

What would be smart is if I could turn off Autocorrect while we wait for Microsoft to realise there is a whole world outside the USA.

I worked around this issue by updating the autofill language code to en-US and then formatting the date as I wanted to.

There is a work around... If you put the exact text you want (for me it was "dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm AM/PM") into a label (label12), then just call on that label eg.

User().FullName &" "& Text( Now(),Label12.Text ). Call on the label rather than putting the text directly into the field.

eg. for you Text(ThisItem.Price, "$ ##.00") is replaced with Text(ThisItem.Price, Label1.Text) and Label1 has a Text value of "$ ##.00"

This worked really well. I used it to format a start and end date to use Australian date format. 

 

Thanks!

Strangely, it also seems to work if you just remove the -AU.

From: Text('Start Time',"[$-en-AU]HH:mm - dddd, d mmmm, yyyy")

To: Text('Start Time',"[$-en]HH:mm - dddd, d mmmm, yyyy")

Updates to Transitions in the Power Platform Communities

We're embarking on a journey to enhance your experience by transitioning to a new community platform. Our team has been diligently working to create a fresh community site, leveraging the very Dynamics 365 and Power Platform tools our community advocates for.  We started this journey with transitioning Copilot Studio forums and blogs in June. The move marks the beginning of a new chapter, and we're eager for you to be a part of it. The rest of the Power Platform product sites will be moving over this summer.   Stay tuned for more updates as we get closer to the launch. We can't wait to welcome you to our new community space, designed with you in mind. Let's connect, learn, and grow together.   Here's to new beginnings and endless possibilities!   If you have any questions, observations or concerns throughout this process please go to https://aka.ms/PPCommSupport.   To stay up to date on the latest details of this migration and other important Community updates subscribe to our News and Announcements forums: Copilot Studio, Power Apps, Power Automate, Power Pages
