How display number on form with commas

I have a number field on a form that populates on an after update event of a combo box.  But the number is not showing up with commas.  For example it just displays as "50000" and I want to appear as "50,000".  I have the fomat of the field as standard, 0 decimals.  The query in the combo box has the field as standard, 0 decimals also.

How is the field being populated?

Have you tried just setting it's format to 0,000.00 or something similar.
