Units of Levels

Could some please advise if it is possible to change the units for the
levels, as used for floor planes, shown in sections and elevations, etc.

Generally, we start a project with a survey and datum levels are 100.000
metres. with this in mind, most sites don't have negative numbers for
levels, which would add confusion to a project.

However, this takes the Revit levels at being 100000 which although correct,
is a bit of a mouth full. Ideally it would read 100.000m

Has anyone come across this problem ?

Also, wish everyone a relaxing family Christmas and best for 2010...

Merry Christmas to you too.
First, if you want to see the dot (.) as the separator, specify that in Windows > Control panel > Regional options.
Then, in Revit, to display the separator, go into Manage > Project Units > select meters > check Use digit grouping.
