I have a data table that is pulling from SQL server and I wanted to know if there was a way to set every column with numbers to default to 3 decimal places? Is this something I can do on the front end with powerapps or is it something I'd have to change on the backend in SQL?
For example the 3 there should be 3.000
Solved! Go to Solution.
Best way to do this is to create a gallery instead of a data table. Then place a label inside the gallery for each mesaurement and use this code to control the formatting.
Text(ThisItem.'Outer Diameter', "0.000")

You can select the column in the data table that you want to configure the number of decimal places, and use the Text function to determine how the data will be shown in its Text property. For example, for the first column, you can use an expression like this:
Text(ThisItem.'Outer Diameter', "[$-en-US]0.000")
The attached file shows this example. To open it, save it locally, then go to https://create.powerapps.com, then select Open -> Browse, and find the file that you saved.
Hope this helps!
