Ability to export values as formatted for .CSV


As a user, I need to be able to export data in the format I have set instead of a standardised format when exporting as .CSV.


For example, I want to be able to export


  • Large numbers - The option to export "1,000,000,000,000" rather than "1.0E12"
  • Small numbers - The option to export "0.00001" rather than "1.0E-5" 

My data feeds other systems that do not accept scientific notation and I currently have to create external workarounds for this

  • Model builders and workspace administrators can now select an option to export formatted numbers for unformatted file types: text, CSV, unformatted XLS, and XML. This makes it easier to use the data in other applications. The exported numbers match the number of decimal places set up for the line item, and use "." as the decimal indicator. No thousand separator is used, and custom units and currency symbols are not exported.
