Format Numeric Columns

On this page


Numeric values within total rows (of numeric table columns) can be formatted to look like currency, percentages, times, or plain numbers with decimal places, thousands, and abbreviations. This functionality was introduced in Version 6.2 of the Advanced Tables for Confluence add-on.

Version 6.4 extended the support to provide the ability to force the format on the view of the data rows (FF and M formats). The actual data is not changed, just how it is displayed. This helps to keep the data looking consistent even if the provided data is not. The Column Types parameter is used to specify what type of formatting is done. 


The Formatting Options listed on this page can be defined through the Column Types parameter within the following Macros:
