for c#

for (int i = 0; i < dt.Rows.Count; i++)
            {
                dt.Rows[i]["Payment"] = Convert.ToDouble(dt.Rows[i]["Payment"]) * -1;
                or
                dt.Rows[i]["Payment"] = Convert.ToInt32(dt.Rows[i]["Payment"]) * -1;
            }

in db sp/query use percision as following

select cast(colName as numeric(18,2) colName from tbl

you can change percisoon as per requiremnt 18,2 or else 2 means 2 decimal points
