negative number format
I have a report uploaded to excel from a particular program used here at
work. In that program, negative numbers have the format of $###.00-, with
the minus sign at the end instead of the beginning.
When the data comes over to Excel the minus sign is still at the end of the
number. The text currently has a General Format with No Specific Number
Format. I have been manually moving the minus signs to the beginning in each
cell, then changing the Column to Currency Number Format which is very time
consuming. Is there a formula I can use in the Cell, Column and/or Worksheet

My computer is set to European date format but Excel is default to American
date format. Can someone advise how to change this default setting.
Have you restarted Excel since setting the system date formatting? Excel
takes its cue from the OS on launch. Also, double-check the Regional setting
in the System Prefs.
If those aren't the cause you'll need to be specific about your version &
update levels of both Office & OS X plus any other details you can supply.

It's not a server-side setting, rather a client option. The only way you

Open the file in Excel the same as any Excel file, although you may need to
change the file type (bottom list in the Open File dialog box). If you don't
know the specific Lotus version, just choose "All Files".
Once you open the file in Excel go to File>Save As and open the bottom list
for Save As Type. Pick the format you want.
Hope this helps|:>)
