Excel 2007 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 ?

I was attempting to post a batch that contained a transfer. The post failed and I recevied a message that "The serial number does not exist for this item and site". The items were moved from the source site to the destination, but the allcoated quantites in the source site are now negative. Any ideas how to fix this? Have you run the inventory reconcile process?

I'm using Money 2007 Premium but have had this problem in the last several versions as well. Why is it that if I record a negative expensive, it is not reflected in the reports? An example: Let's say I go out to dinner with a friend. We receive the check and I pay by credit card and my friend pays me with cash to cover his/her part. I record the restaurant in the Food: Dining Out category in my credit card account and then record that I received the cash in my Cash account and classify it as a negative expense to the same category. However, when I view the reports, only the pos...

Sometimes when I subtract a number from itself, I get a negative zero, rather than a simple zero.

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 given the type of the variable, but...

When generating my items usage in a smartlist the quantity comes up xxxx-. Excel does not recognize this field as a number. Consequently, I can't do a calculation on this field in Excel.

I am trying to create a smartlist that would return the soptype return and invoice but have the return amount appear as a negative number.

I prefer positive numbers which are currency to be black, and negative numbers which are currency to be displayed in red along with the negative sign.

What is the correct procedure for handling this scenario. Brian, If you agree with them crediting the $200 for the old invoice, then you need to enter a credit memo for $200...apply it to one of the invoices, then you will be left with $1000 due on your 3 invoices and a $1000 check. -- Victoria Yudin GP MVP "Brian" <Brian@discussions.microsoft.com> wrote in message news:888F6C5C-90...
