I have an Access report (Income Statement) with number format set to #,##0;(#,##0)
The format correctly displays the brackets with negative numbers, but they are not aligned with the positive numbers. Is there a way to fix the alignment? The text boxes are the exact same size and are perfectly aligned in the report.
The negative numbers are off by 3-4 characters when displayed.

Any help would be much appreciated,
