    Numbers in columns aligned by thousands separator

      Hi there

       

      Is it possible in FM to align numbers by the thousand separator?  Obviously you can right align and therefore any positive number will have three numbers before the first comma, BUT, when you have a negative shown with brackets, the right alignment will align against the bracket.  This has the result of moving the thousand separator one space to the left when compared to a positive value above.

       

      Effectively, it would be better if the bracket were proud of the 'numberical edge' of the coumn, thus leaving the thousand separators all aligned, regardless of whether a figure is negative or positive.

       

      I hope I've explained this suitably :S

       

      Thanks in advance
