In the Forms PowerView, open the form you
need and right-click a field you’d like to reformat.

number format so that the field accepts whatever data you enter into it.
If you chose Fonts, simply choose the font type, size,
style, and colors from the appropriate fields and click OK
when you’re finished. Notice that as you change your font effects you
can preview them in the preview pane to the bottom right of the window.

other non-numeric characters into the field.
2 Decimal Places – Limits the number of decimal places
in a number field to 2.
Show Commas – Toggles commas in numeric fields on and
Leading + or - - Requires a leading + or – in the
field such as in the comps grid.
No Transfer In – Toggles field locking on and
Rounding – Allows you to set rounding for numeric
fields. The default option is No
Alignment – Allows you to set your field
alignment. The default option is No Align.
