If you wish the replacement text of a 'simple' numerical value to be 'formatted' in the final text with appropriate separators, precede or follow the number with '<F>' (the placement of the modifier is not critical for this function).

    Example:

Document text:

Thank you for your order of [quantity]<F> widgets.

 

If, when you display the IDB screen and type in 65344 beside the variable [quantity], the text will become:

Thank you for your order of 65,344 widgets.

lightbulbsmallOptionally, can manually type the <F> markers in the 'value' column of the Instant Database screen. The same results will occur because the markers are transferred into the document and Pathagoras processes them as if they were pre-placed.

    Example:

Variable (in document and                    Replacement Text
on left side of IDB Screen) __________(right side of IDB Screen)

[Quantity]

65344<F>

Thank you for your order of [quantity] widgets.

will become:

Thank you for your order of 65,344 widgets.
