    I need to add $ to a number that is shown but not calculated -
    in your example- one number would be $123 not just 123
    thank you very much for your help
    this has been great.

    You may consider using a Text box field instead of Number field so that you can mask the input as shown below :

    If you want you can still add this field to the calculation. Hope this information helps!

    Hi Buzz,

    Not sure if it would be appropriate in this case but just FYI, in addition to the solution provided by my colleague, we have a Masked Input widget which formats amounts with commas as well as the currency symbol of your choice.
