However it added a "." to all positive and negative numbers regardless of whether there were decimals after it.

e.g.

10 displayed as 10.
-30 displayed as (30.)

In otherwords - I am trying to find the "general" format and modify it to include brackets for negative number, and also modify it so that the positive numbers aligning with the negative numbers with the ) over hanging.

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?

I need the conditional formatting to make all numbers that are zero clear (i.e. no fill).

I need it to make all negative numbers to be red, however it doesn't seem to recognize "-1" as a number, and ends up highlight everything red when I say "highlight values < -1 red".

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.

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 tried to use the find and replace function to delete different numbers from different cells (all in one column) but the problem is that I want to delete different kind of numbers.

Let me give you an example:

Starting point:

Cell A1: Bookrunner: Barclays Capital(368.726m) Cell A2: Bookrunner: DBS(368m) Cell A3: Mandated Arranger: Commonwealth Bank of Australia (Singapore)(367.163m) Cell A4: Mandated Arranger: DnB NOR ASA (Singapore)(367.163m)

I want to reach here:

Cell A1: Bookrunner: Barclays Cell A2: Bookrunner: DBS Cell A3: Mandated Arranger: Commonwealth Bank of Australia (Singapore) Cell A4: Mandated Arranger: DnB NOR ASA (Singapore)

(I dont want the information in () like (Singapore) to be deleted! Only the () which contains numbers)

I used the find and replace function to delete ever single number, but I think its a little unprofessional to do so!

I have a small problem that I may be able to deal with in another way, but if all else fails then I need some assistance.

I have this formula: =AND(N3<=$U$1,MOD($U$1,N3)=0)

But unfortunately there will be a time when cell U1 will have the contents of perhaps 12(1). Is there any way to get the formula to ignore the brackets and the figures in the brackets?

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.

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.

How to show negative values displayed in brackets so that it is aligned properly with positive values in the same column. That is, the right bracket of the negative value is as follows:

(1,234.56) 800.12 - so that 2 is aligned underneath 6

I have done research on the forum and help on vba and got the following "#,##0.00_);[Red]($#,##0.00)"

I understand that the underscore is needed for the alignment. However, when I include the _) the above is shown as follows:

(1,234.56) 800.12_) the underscore and bracket are included and the bracket and is aligned underneath the right bracket above.

Excel 2000. I am having a little problem getting the list of numbers detailed below to turn red if Negative and Green if positive, (0:00 to stay blank). These numbers will changed between a maximum of 120:00hrs and -120:00hrs....

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.

I am attempting to add conditional formatting (yellow fill) to cells that are greater than 15% or less than -15%. I've tried the following formula but, it highlights all cells.

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 understand how to only sum negative numbers but my problem is pulling only certain ones from a list. I have tried numerous IF and SUMIF statments with no solutions. I have attached a worksheet showing what I am trying to do.

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?

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 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?
