Would love eto have this put in a thousands separator if the amount is > or = to 1000.
And two separators it the amount is >= 1 million.

Can someone give an example that shows how to separate a number (example $1234) with the comma to denote thousands ($1,234)?
Thank you!

If it's for display only, the inspector allows you to choose the thousands separator. (Data inspector)
If you want to do it by calculation to insert it in a text, it's a little bit more difficult.
A hack is to use the layout formatting (as explained above), name the field object and get it's content using GetLayoutObjectAttribute ( "objectName" ; "content" )

Better is the use of NumToJText function:
NumToJText ( yourNumberHere ; 1 ; 4 )
