Formating Negative Figures in Brackets
In earlier version of Excel, we could get a specific format for presenting
the negative numbers in brackets and / or in red color. I could not find it
in the Excel 2007. This can be done in the Custom Format. I do not have
specifics for it. Can you give me the format for the same ?
Why did the Excel remove this useful and oft needed feature from their new
version, or am I missing something ?

I am trying to use the import from text file into an excel sheet. I
read many queries and figured out how to import the values as text
without dropping the leading zeros.
Please suggest a way where i can import all the values as "text" type.
I want to avoid creating an array as the size of my text file varies

would it skip all the rest of my code and go straight to End Sub?

It means that your result is less than zero, but not within the precision
you are displaying. For example, ...Determine the number of bits in a negative number
I'd like to determine the number of bits (the position
of the highest on bit) in a negative number (say -1)
without using knowledge of its type.
Valid operations would be AND, OR, XOR, negation,
and one's compliment can be done as:
'Get a -1 of the same type as myvar
Dim minus1: minus1 = myvar - (myvar + 1)
Dim onesComp: onesComp = myvar XOR minus1
You could also use multiplication or division by 2
or other mathematical operators/functions, but
then sign extension comes into play.
The standard solution is to presume the answer

Quote product lines should allow for negative amounts. A situation where

I accepted a downloaded transaction today and Money 2004 crashed on me.
When I restarted, I noticed that my checking account balance was
negative and several unsent electronic billpay transactions had
materialized. The only backup I had seems to not work (damn floppies).
Ive tried both a quick and standard repair as well as deleting my IE

I forgot to add that when I view all transactions in the register,
everything looks fine. It's when I switch to View unreconciled

Yes. In SLB you can create a calculated field that will take the amount and

Is there a math.h function for finding the negative reciprocal of a

int nDenominator= 2;

nNewNumerator = -2;
nNewDenomintator = 4;

Select the range (or column)

Specify "Cell value", "Is less than" "0" and make the font white (or colour
of cell background) that it disappears
or B) use Format | Custom Format using something like $#,##0.00;""
