After upgrading from V6.0 to V6.1, the numeric formatting within my genies is not displaying correctly. The text property in my genie is configured to display a numeric value with a format of '###' , without decimal places. But in runtime, the genie displays a numeric value with decimal places. The tag associated with the genie has a numeric format of '###.#'. I do not want to change the numeric format of the variable tag. 

The problem can be reproduced in the CSV_Example project.
A workaround is to use the abs() function in the Numeric Expression of the text property of the genie.

abs(TagScaleStr("%Tag%_PV",100 , 0))

After adding the abs function, do an update pages, pack and compile. Start runtime, the genie should now display values without decimal places.
