Format To Change Negative/positive Sign

Aug 25, 2009

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?

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."

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)

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?

Display Plus Sign For Positive Numbers

Nov 20, 2006

If you have a formula lets say ( sum A1-A2) and the total is negative i.e. A1 is 100, A2 is 50 would return -50, how do you get the value to show a plus sign if the value is positive? i.e. if A2 is 100 and A1 is 50, excel would simply show 50, but I'd like it to show +50. Also, if the result is 0, so both A1 and A2 are 50, how do I get Excel to display the words On Forecast in a cell?

Finding A Non Numeric (or Numeric) Character In A Field

Sep 1, 2008

I have a few thousand products codes (i.e ABCD123BLA08 or SHU267BLA) They are non standardised in length or structure. I wish to pull out everything upto the end of the third numeric digit.( ie ABCD123 and SHU267) I cannot use left as they are all different lengths. Ideally i would serach for a non numeric char after the number then use left up to that point. Search can't do this, FIND can't do this.

Summary
ABCD123BLA08 would be ABCD123
SHU246BLU would be SHU246
I147ORT08-12 would be I147

If Cell Contains Character Then Use Amount With + Or - Sign

Apr 4, 2013

I have a spreadsheet where column E needs to be filled with an amount depending on whether another cell in column F has either a + or - sign.

For example:

F2 has "+ ACH PreAuthorized", G2 has "322.1". I would like to have cell E2 fill in the amount "+322.1". So in cell E2, if F2 has a plus sign, then put in the amount in E2. If it has a - sign, put in the amount from G2 into E2 but put a - sign in front of the amount. If there is no sign at all, put a zero or leave blank.

Matching Negative Value W/ Corresponding Positive Value

Jan 23, 2008

I have a spreadsheet of invoices and credits memos (500+ rows). Is there a way to match the positive and negatives that match? For example if there is -40.39 in one cell and positive 40.39 in another that it could highlight both those cells. I was thinking to do it in conditional formatting however I can not get it to work. It does not have to be fancy I just need to highlight them because there will not be a lot that do actually match.

Convert Positive # To Negative

Mar 11, 2009

Is there a simple way to convert a positive number to a negative number ?

Fromto
10(10.00)
56(56.00)
116(116.00)

Additionally, would the same procedure work for time?
So if I had a column listing hours that looks like this:

10:05:00
4:34:00
2:18:06

is there a way to convert this to negative hours? Understandably, there are no such thing as negative hours, but I am trying to illustrate a situation where an internal procedure was completed x amount of hours before the specified start time.

Ensure A Negative Or Positive Value

Feb 2, 2010

My form has a combobox with three options "Withdrawal" "Deposit" "Fee". I want to make sure that whatever number a user puts into a textbox, if they select "Withdrawal" or "Fee" that number will be converted to a negative number, and if they select "Deposit" it will be positive. I have written the following code and am just wondering if there is some super slick way of doing it other than an if statement.

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

Add Positive Or Negative From Division

Dec 3, 2006

I have a forecast for a week, all days I type in, the real order, in the end of the week I got a difference between the forecast and the real orders. the difference can be positive or negative, in any case I want that difference to be added on the next cell on next week, plus the difference between the forecast and the real order from the day before, and so on.

I'm using this formula "E4*($L$3+1+IF(K4,ABS(K3/K4-1),0))" but if the real order is less than the forecast the formula add the difference increasing in a positive way, when what I want is decrease the value if the difference shows a negative tendency.

hope this make sense.

I attached a file with what I intend to do.

TRIMMEAN Only On Positive (negative) Values On A Row

Mar 7, 2014

Using AVERAGEIF on a row containing both positive and negative values one can easily calculate the Average of only the positive or negative values. I need to filter the 20% outlier on each case, how can I do that with TRIMMEAN ?

This is an example of the current formula using Averageif for the positive values:

=IF(C3=0;0,0001;AVERAGEIF(Auxiliary!B29:BL29;">="&O3))

For now O3 can assumed to be 0.

Remove Positive And Negative Duplicates?

May 2, 2014

I am currently working on a project whereby I need to remove duplicate rows (containing both a positive and negative number). I've tried a few different formulas and macros but I'm running into a problem. It's wanting to remove ALL positive matches instead of one.

For example: Column BH has -4,4,4,-2,2,-1,1,

I need it remove those numbers that cross cancel and keep the one that doesn't have a partner.

Side note: Column A has an owner code, Column B a well code, and BH is the amount due.

Formula To Change A Negative No To A Positive

Dec 26, 2006

This may be more of a math question rather than an Excel one.

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.
