    We’ll send you updates on this idea

    Thanks for all the support and comments about this request. We don’t have plans to add this format in the near future, but we’ll keep monitoring the votes as we prioritize this suggestion among other requests.

    – For existing workbooks, you’d need to set the style in each workbook.
    – To make it the default in new workbooks, you can create a new workbook, make the change to the “Comma” style, and then save the workbook as a template…

    isn't this just a custom format already available? #,##0 What would be more globally helpful is the ability to save a custom format as a ribbon button in excel. Then it's not a matter of being for just one format, but giving the user the power to create a custom format and make it quickly accessable.
