| **Trouble finding and inserting slider expressions for count-up of numbers**

Hello all experts!

I've got an expression (see below) in an AE template for 3D Bars, and it contains an expression for the numbers to count up, but for the life of me, I can't find the right expression to add, and the right place to insert it, so that the numbers 1) don't have the decimal point, and 2) do include the comma inserted. The numbers do not go higher than 100,000. Appreciate all the help!

`d1s = inPoint;`

d2s = 0;

d2e = effect(3)("Slider");

d3s = outPoint;

trans = 1;

if (marker.numKeys==2)

{

d3e = marker.key(2).time;

d1e = marker.key(1).time;

}

else

{

d3e = outPoint - trans;

d1e = inPoint + trans;

}

ease(time, d1s, d1e, d2s, d2e) - ease(time, d3s, d3e, d2s, d2e);

Hey Reed. I assume you don't want decimals at all, and the comma is for thousands separation. If this correct:

1. Round end result to have no decimals:

`Math.round('yourValueHere')`

Thanks for the links. Will give 'em a try. I found the "round off" in the AE template (amazing what you find when you open your eyes!), and will attempt to insert the comma code into the script. Thanks again.
