  2. Hey guys, I have a very random question about your presentation yesterday. I really liked the regex solution to adding commas into your numbers, I was wondering if you had something similar for dynamic formatting of large numbers? We have swings from K, to M, to B frequently depending on the time frame someone is filtering for, and right now I just use a ridiculously long If Then.
    Thanks,
    Davis Ward
