  • I was having the same issue and I found a solution.
    Use CONCATENATE in the formula: =CONCATENATE(YEAR([your date field]))

    The commas are gone in both column view and grouped view.

  • I had a date column then I had another column called year and used the formula “=TEXT(Date,”yyyy”)” to convert it to a year but there was a seperator.

    Using the JSON worked.
    Thanks for the help!

  • When I copy data from grid view to Excel, the thousand separators appear in Excel files

  • Hi. What happens, when you now group by Project Year? I had exactely the same problem and the JSON works fine for the column. In groups meanwhile there is still the comma shown. Can you maybe add a solution for that as well to your article?
    Thanks a lot and keep up the great work. I love your page!
