# Formula To Make Product Of Two Negative Numbers Negative

May 12, 2009

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.

## How To Make Conditional Formatting For Negative Numbers

Feb 19, 2014

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".

How would I do this?

## Convert Negative Numbers With Negative Sign On Right

Aug 1, 2007

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)

## Make Positive Entered Numbers Appear As Negative For Budget

Mar 28, 2007

I am trying to create a budget in excel and want to type my numbers (in certain cells only) without a - sign but I want them to appear, and calculate, as negative numbers. Basically, I am lazy and don't want to have to remember to use a - for all of my expenses when I am inputting the data.

## Negative Numbers In An IF Formula

Jul 19, 2006

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.

## Formula To Sum All Numbers With Same Sign (negative / Positive)

Jul 23, 2012

I am looking for a formula to do the following:

In Tab 1, I have a negative number and the word "Original" next to it. In Tab 2, I have a mix of positive & negative numbers. I want all numbers that are negative to display the word "original" and all positive to display" new." How do I do that? Also, I want the opposite to work as well-- if Tab 1 has a positive number, I want all positive numbers in Tab 2 to display "original."

## Formula To Pick Up Negative And Or Positive Numbers?

Jul 17, 2013

I have the following formula
=IF(VLOOKUP(F89,'2013 susp 2714035 Reissues'!F:F,1,FALSE)=F89,"yes",FALSE)

That is supposed to look at the tab 2714035 Reissues and find the same dollar amount. The issue Iam having is the dollar amount can be a negative or a positive amount but the formula is only picking up the number if it matches exactly negative to negative or positive to positive. formula to pick up the matching number if its a negative or a positive.

## Positive To Negative If Cell On Left Negative

Sep 1, 2007

I have data starting in E7. I want it to go down the column and find the negative numbers. If it finds one then I want it to change the number in the row to the left of it to a negative. So if E67 is a negative number, make D67 a negative and so forth down the line Sounds "simple" but how do I do it?

## Using Macro To Make Data Negative?

May 21, 2013

I run a MTD sales report from Access. If the "SOP Type" in Column Q, is a "4", I have to manually change the Qty and Price to negative values as that "4" denotes a Credit. My question is this...

Can I write a Macro that would be able to read the value in Column Q and, where necessary, make the values negative in the appropriate columns?

## Make Certain Textbox Negative Value Based On Checkbox

Mar 20, 2014

I have a part of code but would need to see if there is a simple way to combine all my textbox to become negative value If my Combobox is checked.

In my Module, This will Calculate my Textbox11 each time I call for my Sub

This will call my Sub updateTextBoxes() I have set up from Textbox2 to textbox10

In my Userform I have a CheckBox1. If this CheckBox1 is Selected then I need to change the entry of all Textboxes(2-10) to be negative Value.

Works well right now but I need to identify all Textbox separately how could I bundle this up... even if a module is called...

So IF checkbox1 = True then textbox2 to textbox10 will = a negative value... If user adds 2 to textbox2 when the checkbox1 is = True then 2 will turn to -2

## SUM Negative Numbers

Sep 23, 2009

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

## Gathering The Sum Of Negative Numbers & Positive Numbers In A Column

Dec 17, 2009

## Conditional PRODUCT Function Formula (return The Product Of A List Of Numbers In A Column)

Sep 30, 2009

I am trying to use a PRODUCT formula to return the product of a list of numbers in a column, between 2 specified dates. The spreadsheet is arranged as follows:

Column BA list of dates
Column C & DNumerical data not used in any calculations
Column EThe numbers to multiply together
Cell A1Start date to be used in the PRODUCTformula
Cell A2End date to be used in the PRODUCT formula

The formula I have to multiply the data in column E, subject to the start and end dates in Column A is:

{=PRODUCT(IF(B15:B1000>A1,IF(B15:B1000<=A2,INDEX(B15:E1000,0,4))))}

This returns zero though works appropriately if I replace �PRODUCT� with a �SUM�.

## Do Not Display Negative Numbers

Oct 19, 2008

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.

## Interpret As Being NEGATIVE Numbers

Feb 24, 2009

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:

I'm using Excel 2000

## Limit To Whole Numbers, No Negative #

Apr 24, 2009

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?

## Extracting Negative Numbers

Aug 17, 2009

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?

## Making Negative Numbers To Become Zero

Aug 7, 2006

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.

## Positive And Negative Changes Any 2 Numbers

Feb 4, 2012

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

Is there a way to select only negative #'s on a spreadsheet? I wasn't able to do it with "go to" ctrl-g.

## Converting Numbers To Negative

Nov 25, 2009

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 don�t 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.

## 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.

## Axis Formatting Negative Numbers

Apr 26, 2014

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”;\$#

## Formatting Numbers To Have Negative In Brackets?

Apr 2, 2014

I am currently using the following format to display numbers in my excel.

_(* #,###,###_);_(* (#,###,###);_(* "-"_);@

The brackets and underscores are used so that the positive and negative numbers align with overhanging brackets.

I want to modify the format such that it is able to display decimals where ever applicable.

For example

1,000 display as 1,000
0 display as a dash "-"
1.265 display as 1.265
-0.51 display as (0.51)

I tried changing it to:

_(* #,###,###.###_);_(* (#,###,###.###);_(* "-"_);@

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.
