I am using the second solution in the below link to try to format a simple calculation but it is not working. Any advice as for what is going wrong?

Your calculation field, TotalPayrollHours, is a numeric calculation, but the type of the calculation field is set to Text. Just change the type of this calculation field to Number and your DailyLaborTotal calculation will work correctly.
