Avoiding thousand separator(comma) in SharePoint Number field

Introduction

SharePoint number fields have thousand separators(comma) which we may not need every time. But there is no possibility of avoiding the thousands separator(comma) in the number fields. 

Using the Code

To avoid this comma, we can do a small working as given below.  

Suppose our Number field is named as "Student No."  Create another Calculated column and name it as "Student Number".  Then you have to type the formula according to the following format:

= TEXT( Number_Column_Name, "0")   

And click Save.

In our scenario, it will show as:

=TEXT([Student No],"0") 

Note: If the Student No field will be empty, the value will be shown as "0".... Or if you want to keep it blank, you have to adjust the formula as: 

 =IF( [Student No] <>"",TEXT( [Student No] ,"0"),"")  

Points of Interest

Here is a small working, but no one really notices it. Hope this will help all of you who are looking for something like this. [I have published the original article in my blog before (Link)]
