Format Dynamic Text Coordinates

I am using data driven pages and including a url to our web-mapping system to show the same extent as the current map. This requires X & Y coordinates without any comma separators (6 figure coordinates for British National Grid)

 

Is there a way to format coordinates so they are displayed without a comma separator? I know I can adjust the decimal places in the tag but are there any other options (Add and modify dynamic text—Layouts | ArcGIS for Desktop )?

 

I know I can create new fields, calculate geometry and format the number in the field properties but would like to avoid this if possible so I do not have to calculate geometry for new polygons.
