# Numeric Modifier Formats

As with date/time modifiers, numeric modifier formats can control the way in which numbers are displayed. The table below shows the supported options along with an example of each. The examples are based on the number *12345.67890*.

**Good to Know**

- Several of the formats are based on the regional settings of the current user’s machine.
- After applying a numeric format, the resulting value is considered to be text, so any text operators can then be applied to the value.
- Cherwell follows IEEE standards for rounding numerical values, specifically the
*round to nearest, ties to even*rule.
