# Negative Formatting ( ) Alignment

Sep 22, 2009
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.

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]$#,,â€Mâ€;[>999]$#,â€Kâ€;$#

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.

It seems that time (i.e. -1:00) will be default as #########, etc. This makes me very unhappy. How to get around?

I could be fine with converting time to a total in seconds (i.e. 1:00 converted to 60 seconds)... but I'm not sure what kind of formula could do that.

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?

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.

=or(b2:b5>15%,b2:b5

Can I use Conditional formatting (highlights duplicate values) but highlight the number even if the number is an Positive or Negative number.

It must highlight the number if it's -300 or 300 in both instances.

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.

I have the following ...

.Offset(3, 0).Value = "For " & P & " numbers there are " & Format(tly, "###,###,##0") & " x different values of " & cmb & " numbers. "

... which includes figures upto and including millions.

The thing is that the above code ONLY produces figures that are relevent.

I have 5 columns of numerical data from Column L to P.

I use the SumIF function in column S to add all the negative numbers, if any.

I then use the IF function in Column R to add the loan # wherever negative values are present.

Here is a screenshot of what it looks like after I'm done with the above:

All I need to do is align this data and move it to the bottom, near the total. This is to make it look presentable and i'll know the defaulting loans at a glance.

I can move it manually, but there are over 50,000 loans and its time consuming.

So, I need a macro to do it, but I'm not sure how to code it.

Below is the screenshot of what it should look like:

Its basically just eliminating the blank cells. Can someone please help me out with the macro code for it?

here is the code i'm using for the SumIf.

Sub addadvances()

Do Until IsEmpty(ActiveCell.Offset(0, -3)) And IsEmpty(ActiveCell.Offset(1, -3))

Application.CutCopyMode = False

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=SUMIF(RC[-7]:RC[-3],""

I'm having trouble coming up with vba code to align values in columns A and B on my workbook. I've attached a sample spreadsheet to illustrate what I am in need of. I've searched the forum and can't quite find the same problem. In my case, their may be the same value more than once in a column, so I'm not sure that vlookup would work.

I feel stupid asking this, but for some reason I am having trouble keeping alignment of columns in a Pivot Table....

I have a Column of text in a pivot table and I am just trying to center the darn thing... but no matter what I have tried, when I refresh the table it goes back to left-aligned....

I have Preserve Formatting set on... in the Table Options.

I have a fixed height userform textbox that i would like to show the last line of.

After there is text in the textbox, enable=false.

I can see how to align for left, right and centre, but not for bottom.

I don't want to change the height or size of the textbox and just need to display the last line of data.

These charts are generated via a macro and have to be aligned using VBA.

The charts look fine on my screen bu their alignments and position are messed up when another person uses it on another computer.

This is the code i am using to align the charts

chartwidth = 300

chartheight = 200

With ActiveSheet.Shapes("Chart 1")

.Width = chartwidth * 2 + 10

.Height = chartheight

End With

With ActiveSheet.Shapes("Chart 2")

.Width = chartwidth

.Height = chartheight

End With

With ActiveSheet.Shapes("Chart 3")

.Width = chartwidth

.Height = chartheight

End With

ActiveSheet.Shapes("Chart 1").IncrementLeft -128.25

ActiveSheet.Shapes("Chart 1").IncrementTop -75

ActiveSheet.Shapes("Chart 2").IncrementLeft 182.25

ActiveSheet.Shapes("Chart 2").IncrementTop 139.5

ActiveSheet.Shapes("Chart 3").IncrementLeft -126.75

ActiveSheet.Shapes("Chart 3").IncrementTop 138

As a simple example, I have three columns (A,B,C). In both Column A and B they have single word text in them, but in Column C it is a paragraph of words that I format the cells to 'fill' so that it is all tight and concise when viewing the worksheet.

Afer I have saved the document and have closed it when I reopen the document. Cells from column C have randomly duplicated themselfs throughout the entire worksheet,but only onto columns A,B,C (where there is pre-existing text). As the random cells get duplicated it overrights the original text (results) as it does it, so once I open up a document and see this it is to late. this is a continual problem that I cant find a resolution for.

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 5 columns of data where each column of data has two number in it separate by a space where the headers for each column is c1, c2, c3, c4 and c5. for example

c1 c2 c3 c4 c5 c6 c7 etc

1 1 1 2 2 2 2 1 1 1

3 3 3 4 4 4 4 3 3 3

etc

where each of these number pairs is under a separate column. The preview option for this forum editor is showing quite a difference between intended presentation and actual..

What I am looking to do is for each line item is to put the content of each row into a single cell with vertical alignment of the pairs of numbers. for example

c6

1 1

1 2

2 2

2 1

1 1

3 3

3 4

4 4

4 3

3 3

where each group of five pairs is in a single cell.

I am looking to do this in as automated an approach as possible. I dont want to have to ctrl-enter for example 4 times for each cell in c6 for 1000 different line items..

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 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?

i am tracking my working hours at night, so i type in the time i start and the time i quit like this:

A 1 start B 1 end

A 2 22:30 B 2 02:30

now i want to calculate the time between.

but since excel don't like the negative time i got a problem. i figure i must make a function something like

=IF(B2<A1,B2+24)

i have tried a few but i don't get the parameters right so i get errors,

I am trying to show how many years it will take for a retiree to run out of money.

row 1 is his available money (this in determined with other formulas such as income - expenses ect)

Row 2 is number of years (J2 would be 10 years)

Let's say available money turns negative on the 10th year (tenth column "J")

How can I write a condition statement that will say that says if the amount in row one is positive do nothing, but when it turns negative add row 2 of whatever column it turned negative in?

Example:

A B C D E F G H I J K L

5000442538503275270021251550975400-175-750-1325

For simplicity sake I will put what I have in close proximity cells and what my issue is. I am taking a number A1 (7.7) and turning it into time A2 =A1/24 (7:42)

A3 (18:00) Which is our work start time. I am taking 7:42 min estimated work day hours and adding that to our start time of 18:00 for A4.

A4 =A2+A3 (1:42) This tells me that we should get done around 1:42 am

A5 I enter the actual time we finished. Let's say (2:23)

A6 =TEXT(MAX($A$4:$A$5)-MIN($A$4:$A$5),"-H::MM")

This gives me an answer of (23:19), but if I type over the formula in A4 (1:42) which is the answer to the formula and already has that number there, I get the answer (0:41) in A6 and that is the answer I want. I can't figure out why I can't get A6 to give me an answer of (0:41) with a formula in A4. I even tried having another cell formulate A4 and then A4 =that cell and it is still the same.
