How does one use Python to format a number label so it shows the thousands separator? For example, I have a value of 12345 that I want to display (from the Shape.Area field of a File Geodatabase feature class) on the map as a label as 12,345.
I looked at these discussions, but can't seem to get it to work.
I guess I could slice the value and insert commas, but I was hoping to use something easier.
I'm using ArcGIS 10.2.1 (so Python 2.7.5). I'm a beginner in Python, so there is a good chance I am just missing something basic in trying to do this.
