How do I change a Positive number into a Negative number inside a cell formula?

I have a figure in Cell AE 101 which has the positive number 141

I have another cell W1 which has the positive number of 437

I want to create a formula in cell X1 that takes the number in cell AE 101 of 141 and convert the number inside the formula of 141 into a negative number of -141 and then subtracts that number from Cell W1 of 437 leaving an equation inside the formula to read. 437-141 = 296

Since the number in Cell W1 changes all the time and the number in AE101 Changes all the time the new formulated number in X1 will change all the time too as the cells get updated.

My bank sends me my statement data as: Description, Date, Amount

...where the amount is text as a number followed by either a plus or minus.

Does anybody know how quickly convert the column of data into proper numbers?

I've been playing around with LEN, RIGHT and SEARCH, but not getting very far because I don't know how to extract the text to the left given the numbers vary in the number of digits...

I am wanting to finish a worksheet for my boss. What I have done so far is taken the " forecast" of vehicles shown and used a formula of subtract from "actual" vehicles sold to get "how many we have left to go". what he wants to do is have the "to go" number change from red when a negative to green when it reaches a positive. example:

forecast = 30

actual = 27

to go = -3

that "to go" needs to be without a negative sign but in RED to negate a negative. Is that possible with a formula??

I have a database of over 200,000 parts

In this database i have cost and sale price. 20,000 parts have the numbers backwards.

if you loop the rows you can subtract =SUM(AE2-Y2) if that number is a negative number I would need the value of AE copied to Y2 and the value of Y2 copied to AE2. the 2 being the row number which would always change with the loop.

How Do Change Multiple Different Negative Numbers All Into One Specific Number? Anither Words How do I change one number into another Number

Lets say I have list of numbers like this

-24

-19

-37

-22

-24

-42

-26

-20

-28

-23

-28

-42

-23

-53 etc.

and I want all the negative number at -21 and down to be changed into -20 and all other numbers higher then -20 or whole numbers to be left alone.

So numbers -21 -22 -23 -24 .... -36 -37 -38 .... -45 -46 etc are all changed into -20 and all other numbers like -19 -18 -17 -16 .... 0 1 2 3 4 etc are all left alone.

I tried using the filter tab and couldn't see. I tried the replace key but that took to long changing each and every number from -21 all the way back to -99.

Is there an easier way to change all negative numbers in a specific zone of numbers (-21 thru -99) into one simple number so -21 would change into -20 and -22 would change into -20 and -23 would change into -20 etc etc etc.

My goal from image is to enter a number for example in cell F4 and have in appear in L6 so simply L6=F4 but I want it to be negative if cell M2 reads "Outgo" and positive if cell M2 reads "Intake" as selected from the list. Is this possible?

I would like to use VBA code to automatically change the value from positive to negative.

It appears that the WorkSheet_Change event could be used to do this but I don't know what code to enter into the Sub.

I have excel sheet with colored cells.

Positive cash flow cells all have green background,

Negative cash flow cells, all have red background.

I calculate all the "sub- total" columns into one "total sum" cell. Based on this "total sum" I want the cell background to be red if the total sum is negative, or green if total sum is positive. How do I make the cell change to the proper background color based on whether it's a negative or postive total sum?

I am using the following code to update an invoice summary sheet from an invoice sheet but when a Credit Note is issued I would like the Nettï¿½ value copied across to be a negative figure. When a credit note is issued the value of Service Invoice Cell L2 = 2 and an invoice L2 =1.

VB:

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?

View 7 Replies View RelatedI go negative in one column I want it to show up in the next column as a positive number because when I add my income and subtract my bills and the negative from last month to get the what cash I'll have left it screws up because negative subtract a negative is a positive. So how do i get the sum of say B9 to from -$5.00 to +$5.00 into C4 so when i subtract C4 From my income it wont add to it.

If I have a spreadsheet with a cell that produces different negative number each time it is used, is there a way i can add a formula to make it a positive number.

So if Cell A1 showed -£244.22, I want to add an equation that changes if to £244.22

Cell A1 changes so it would need to do the same for any negative number within that cell.

I have created the If statement below, in a nutshell its comparing current month performance to last month, stating if it has increased or decreased by last month and how much percentage by

example output would be 'This has decreased by x%"

my problem is when it states the performance has increased , the x% is coming as a negative number (-x%)

what can I do to change this to positive?

Below is the formula

=IF(INDEX('Red Activity & Performance'!$E$45:$J$45,MATCH(PERFORMANCE!$AK$31,'Red Activity & Performance'!$E$44:$J$44,0))

I have a cell that always requires a negative currency number.

No doubt I will inadvertently enter a positive number now and then.

Is there a conditional format method or something that will take my cell entry and always change it to negative?

I use data on a text file and import this into Excel and use a macro to format. The data lists invoices and credit notes and their dollar value.

Due to a fault in the program that creates the text file all dollar amounts are shown as positive figures. Credit note amounts should correctly be shown as negative figures.

The invoice number format is 8 characters beginning with a letter and credit notes begin with a number.

Is there macro code that will change credit note values to a negative figure?

I have a series that comprises of two rows:

Row 1 is date

Row 2 are values

I am trying to find a formula where I can identify where in row two the value chages from positive to negative, and where it changes from positive to negative it should return the date the value changes from positive to negative ie:

ROW 1 08-Jan 09-Jan 10-Jan

ROW 2 1111 22222 -33333

The formula should identify that in row 2 the negative value occurs at -33333 and at the 10th of January.

I would like to add to this formula.... if the result of "$L$6-Q15", from below, is 0 or a negative number, then the desired result would be 0 for this formula.

Possibly wrapping IF AND somewhere in this...

=IF((O15+(K16*$L$5))>=$L$6,$L$6-Q15,K16*$L$5)

This may sound simple, but is not (it might be easy for you hopefully)...... I have a string of numbers and the first few numbers can be either postive, negative or zero....Later on, the numbers all become negative......

I need to find the the cell which contains the first negative number in the consequtive negative numbers.....The difficult part is the numbers before the consequtive negative numbers can be anything......

is there a way to format a cell that will make the number a negative number regardless of what number I type; whether I type a positive or negative.

What i'm trying to accomplish is enter a number and the number will be negative. I don't want to have to type a negative in front of the number.

I have two arrows:

- Red Arrow points down to signify negative change

- Green Arrow points up to signify positive change

These arrows look exactly like the Excel 2007 conditional formatting arrows you would apply to a cell - the only difference is that I have inserted them as shapes so I can float them over a graph.

GOAL: Corresponding with the graph, if a cell shows a (+) change, then I display green arrow and hide red arrow. Vice versa for a (-) change.

Is there a way to a formula that would show the following? A plus B = C but if A is below 0, stop the value at 0 then add column B:

Columns:

A B C

-2 5 5

1 5 6

0 5 5

How can I make excel to recongnize this: 123456- as a negative number?

How do I create a formula that tells me if a negative number appears in a column.

I keep getting the correct answer, but it returns it as negative and I need a positive answer.

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.
