Formtting a number field.

I have a number field with length as 4 on Campaign object. Now when a user enters a value as 1000, it is automatically formatted as 1,000. I do not want it to get formatted. I simply want to show it as 1000 instead of 1,000. Is it possible to avoid his formatting. I dont want to write a class/trigger to do so.

Use below code 

 

 

 <apex:outputText value="{0,number,###,###,###}">
             <apex:param name="Due Date" value="{!Account.amount}"/>
  </apex:outputText>

In my opinion you should use 'Text' data type instead of  'Number' to avoid the formatting.
