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 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 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.

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?

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.

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 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?

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.

The negative numbers in my currency format does not have any numbers with parenthesis or minus, is there any way that the default format can be changed other than always trying to use a custom format.

I want to find the min and max numbers within a thread of numbers that has both positive and negative values. The key is that I want the smallest amount or the largest amount based on the number and not on the positive or negative.

For example, below is my list of numbers.

7 5 2 -5 -6 7 -8 -3

I want the min formula to return 2 and the max formula to return 8.

I don't know how to manipulate the formula with quoting the "You can't have cups less than zero".

Teletubbies coffee - Nested If

Create a nested If function to describe the Teletubbies coffee drinking habits based on the following criteria:

0 cups = Tea drinker

1-5 cups = Normal

More than 5 cups = Caffeine fiend

Copy the function down and check that it works.

How to structure the If function

Try modifying the If function so that if Cups of coffee is a negative number you see an appropriate error message. Make sure the rest of the function still works!

I have a column of numbers I want to look up, and a column of results to the right I want to spit out. So I have the vlookup formula in column G, H a copy of that, except it's showing the formula instead of result. Same thing with I and J. So you can see the actual formula.

I've manually found the first two numbers and colored them red and green... but I can't seem to get the formula to work.. As you can see, it's only able to find the negative numbers, but not any of the positive numbers.

I tried to test the cells if they are equal or not, and they seem to be equal!

The below code looks in a certain column and deletes rows based on values less than the entered value in the input window. The problem with the code below is that it does not remove rows that have negative numbers. There is the possibility of a negative number being in the column so I would like to have that removed as well.

What would the code look like to add to the current code to remove the rows that have negative numbers? -1, -2, etc.

Sub Delete_Part_Input() Dim Qty As Integer, i As Integer, ans As Variant

Qty = Application.InputBox("What total quantities would you like to delete? Note: This is the value located in the C column.", Type:=1) If Qty = 0 Then Exit Sub

ans = MsgBox("All totals with a quantity of " & Qty & _ " or less will be deleted." & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _.............
