# Convert Negative Numbers To Zero

Jan 23, 2008
In an excel column listing monthly payments, I cannot report a negative value . I need to "carry forward" the negative value by automatically adding it to the next positive cell in the column. This process should loop through the column leaving no negative numbers, leaving a zero in any cell where the negative number was originally and balance out to be the same amount as the sum of the original listing of monthly payments.

I have data that comes from a subsytem that places the negative sign at the right of the number, so it is recognized as text. I can get around this using find and replace and then a second step to multiply that by -1, but is there a formula that can do this for me?

I was trying if(right(A1,1)="-",TBD,A1)

I have created a Pivot table from a source data file that includes a document status column ('Type I Or C') (I for Invoice & C for Credit) and an Invoice / Credit value column (Invoiced Price). However the values for both invoices and credits are positive so when summed distort the total values.

I am attempting to create an additional column within the Pivot table to convert the credit note values to negative by inserting a calculated field under the formula tab, i.e.

=IF('Type I Or C'="C",-'Invoiced Price','Invoiced Price')

The above formula works fine in a standard worksheet but it is not reckonsing the "C" within the pivot table. If I manually change the value to numeric (i.e. 1 for Invoices and 2 for credits) it works fine, i.e =IF('Type I Or C'="2",-'Invoiced Price','Invoiced Price')

so it appears to be an alpha issue?

I use currency data pasted from legacy program that pastes dollar values followed by a C or D to represent debit and credits, ie -- 1,000,000.00C or 1,000,000.00D.

Is there some way to remove the letter and correctly format the value to a negative or positive number on a whole worksheet or column?

Currently I am doing this manually one cell at a time.

I have this data source file that comes from a back office program, and basically what i want it to do is to turn the number negative in column C when the header of that column in column A is WITHDR and leave it positive when it is CONTR. What i was thinking was that it could go to column A from column C and go up each cell until the cell is not a date and multiply the column C number by -1 depending the column A header equals WITHDR and do that for every cell in column C, but I dont know how to proceed, im new at VBA.

I have a large dataset (24000 rows) that requires me to multiply two different columns of integers. In some cases, the two integers are both negative and multiplying them results in a product that is positive. I actually need that product to be negative rather than positive. I can't quite seem to figure out the best way to accomplish this.

Is there a simple way to convert a positive number to a negative number ?

Fromto

10(10.00)

56(56.00)

116(116.00)

Additionally, would the same procedure work for time?

So if I had a column listing hours that looks like this:

10:05:00

4:34:00

2:18:06

is there a way to convert this to negative hours? Understandably, there are no such thing as negative hours, but I am trying to illustrate a situation where an internal procedure was completed x amount of hours before the specified start time.

I have a column of variances, these contain both negative numbers and positive numbers. I want to gather a sum of all the negative numbers and positive numbers separtely. Basically saying all the positive overeages = this amount And all the negative shortages = this amount. you can see the attached sample.

I have this report that comes as a text file.

It makes negative numbers look like 1245.35-putting the - sign at the end. I need some way to make these negative numbers look like -1245.35. Only these negative numbes need to be re-formatted.

Usually this question is asked the other way around, but I have a somewhat unique problem. A certain website gives out tables filled with numbers. Positive numbers show in black font and negative numbers show in red font, but unfortunately, negative numbers do not include the minus sign -- the font is red and that's it!

I need a macro (or any other solution) that will turn the red font numbers to negative ones and would possibly format the cell to show negative numbers in red (I guess the last part is easier). The main problem is searching for the red font numbers and turning them negative.

I am looking for a conditional formula that can be applied to a cell so that when I enter a number with a positive value, it:

1) Converts it to its negative equivalent value.

2) Displays in the value in the cell with parentheses around the number to indicate that the value is negative.

I am trying to do this without having to reference another cell to provide the entry or display the outcome.

I have a column of numbers such as

1001150

1001124

2224445

I need add a period in the following locations

10011.50

10011.24

22244.45

I figured this out using a format rule of

#.##

I then need to make the numbers negative so I did

-#.##

but this doesn't "stick", if I filter the numbers by negative numbers, none of them show up. So how do I make the formatting actually become the numbers? Auto Merged Post Until 24 Hrs Passes;After doing some more research I found the "precision as displayed" option. I can't find this option on Excel 2007, but I moved the files into 2003 and the option doesn't do anything. It is not permanently changing the column that I have added the formatting too.

How can I get the sum of a range excluding any negative numbers?

I've thought about using a new column and using if statement to separate but it would be easier if i could use the same column.

I'm trying to sum negative numbers using the following formula, however for some reason it's not working in the way that it would if I flipped the < to a > sign.

=SUMPRODUCT((Data!$AB$10:$AB$3222=$C$58)*(Data!$L$10:$L$3222=D57)*(Data!$W$10:$W$3222

I have a very simple formula which is basically one cell minus another "=A1-B1".

When the values are equal, the cell this formula is in will display a zero. However, when the subtracted figure is greater than the first figure, i will then get a minus figure E.g. 10-11 = -1.

How can i make it that when the formula result is less than zero (i.e. a minus number) the figure displayed stays at zero but still using the minus funciton? Basically once it hits zero i need it to stop subtracting. This may be really simple but i cant figure it out.

I want to key-in positive numbers, which I really want Excel to interpret as being NEGATIVE numbers. In other words, I want to avoid repeatedly striking the MINUS key. How do I:

Format these Data-Entry cells to this?

Format these Data-Entry cells to return RED displays?

I have constructed an inventory formula, subtracting Current Inventory (CI) from Required Inventory (RI), to generate a number of how many new products must be Ordered: RI-CI=O. The problem is that if CI exceeds RI, I get a negative number for "O".

Question: How can I structure the formula to give a zero for any sum less than 1?

I used this code to extract the value on the text: "11/09/09 backyard $400"

=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("back",A4)),RIGHT(A4,LEN(A4)-FIND("$",A4))+0,"")

and return "400" but i've encountered a value which is negative (could be

-$400, or ($400); and i got an error of #value, could anyone resolve this problem?

IF formula

=IF(D9="","",IF(AND(G9>0,G10>0),"",IF(G9>=G10,G9,G10))+IF(E10=0,"",E10))

G9 and G10 can be positive or negative. If G9 or G10 is a negative number,

I want the greater of the two to be used and then to be added to E10. But

right now, Excel is saying -20 (which is G10) is greater than zero. I'm

getting a VALUE error.

I have been working on an excel sheet:

I am working with stock options. Therefore I must subtract the current stock price Cell C2, which has a value of 23 with the Options price which is D9, has a value of 34.79 then muliply it with the shares which is cell F9 which is 4000. So the formula that i have is (C2-D9)*F9 that gives me the sum which resides in cell I9(total outstanding profit).......This turns out to be a negative number. I want to make it so that if the sum of that formula produces a negative number, i want that negative number to just become a "0". Ive tried the IF function but could not produce any results.

I would like to see that I am continually saving on a per-day basis (as well as overtime). I allowance myself an allowance each day, but some days, I need to spend more money than that. The best solution I have to is keep a running total for myself, so that each day is affected by the preceding days. Therefore, if I spend too much, I now have a small defecit that needs to be corrected. This method keep me on track as far as saving and spending.

Question (and I copied the actual data from my spreadsheet):

Without having to manual enter the final calculations (because this is just a simple part of an overall larger, more complex spreadsheet), can I generate the values in my Value Change row, based on the information from my Running Total row?

For example, Day 1 to Day 2, I was able to incease my running total from 233 to 354 (meaning that I had saved +121 that day). Of course, this is an easy subtraction problem (Day 2 - Day 1 = Value Change). From Day 2 to Day 3, I spent way too much. The running total fell to -1198, meaning that I spent 1552 too much (that day's value change is -1552). Again, this an easy subtraction (Day 3 - Day 2 = Value Change, just like the first example). From Day 3 to Day 4, I was able to reduce my running total -1063, meaning that I was able to save 135 that day. This is my problem. Day 4 - Day 3 does not equal the value change of + 135. To get this value, the preceding formula now has to change to ABS(Day 3) - ABS(Day 4).

This is the issue. I need a formula that can work normally when the numbers are postive or when the second value is larger (in terms of absolute value). On the other hand, it needs to recognize the special cases like Day 3 - Day 4. Is this some form of a conditional function?

Running Total 233354-1198-1063-878-658-933-807-657

Percentage Change51.93%-438.42%11.27%17.40%25.06%-41.79%13.50%18.59%

Value Change121-1552135185220-275126150

Do you know if you can use the cell formatting to change the sign of a number? For example, the cell contains 123.45, but I want it to show as -123.45. I dont want to use a formula to multiply by -1, because the data is being extracted from a database and I have to do a fair amount of work on the report with the formulas to do that.

I can format the number and it shows a minus but will not use the minus if I then use it in a calcualtion. I could use a calcualtion with a *-1 in it but for ease of use by other users who may take part of the Excel report it would be better if I could format the number to negative.

I am using the following format code for the y axis of a line chart. I am shortening the axis to show 3M or 500K instead of $3,000,000 or $500,000. I can't get it to work with negative numbers, I get the full $3,000,000. Somewhere I read you can only do 3 formats in a formula. Is there a way to include negative numbers using this formatting?

[>999999]$#,,”M”;[>999]$#,”K”;$#
