Hi Gene, I don't think there's a way to change the default way Tableau handles new fields when you create a new data source, but it's easy enough to change the number formatting for multiple fields simultaneously. Just select all the fields you want to edit by clicking one, then holding CTRL and clicking the others. Alternatively, you could click one, hold down SHIFT, and click another one, and Tableau will select those fields and all fields in between. Then, right-click, go to Default Properties, and then Number Format. There, you can set the number format as desired and it will apply to all selected fields.
Thanks. I thought it was something simple, but didn't quite know what.
