Currency Setting in US working properply but for foreign country NOT

Hi,

 

I am facing issue on currency setting and calculation on powerapp. The scenario is, I have configured the below code becuase the app will be used in US and I needed "," seperated amount like (if it is 100000, it needed to show 1,000,000 like this).

 

Now people from other country like China, Korea, Taiwan facing issue with calculation. They are not seeing proper amount on the form but if they change their locale & brower language setting then the calculation happening properly.

 

Now the question is: is there any code that I can use so that foreign people don't need to change their setting?

 
 
["$"&Text(0,"[$-en-US] ###,##0.00")]
 
Thanks
TH

Re: Currency Setting in US working properply but for foreign country NOT

Hi @thassan ,

Based on the issue that you mentioned, I think this issue is related to decimal separator (,) you used within your formula.

 

The decimal separator within PowerApps app is based on Region Language setting set up on your PC. Some regions of the world use a . (dot or period) as the decimal separator while others use a , (comma).

Please check the following article for more details:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/global-apps

 

Currently, if you want other foreign people to see proper amount like 1,000,000.00 as you without changing their locale & brower language setting on their PC, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

 

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