you can do this in formating the Col A
Select the entire column A right click Format Cell
Choose Custom and paste the below
#,###,###_)''
Note at the end is 2 single quotes ' ' (no space in between)

This way you have the formating and still the figure is a number not text. If you do not want space between the last digit and the double single quotes then remove the underscore _ to be like this
#,###,###)''

Check the attached file.

Geekamo,

General" ''"
(Between the double-quotes is a space followed by two single quotes.)

Edit: The double quotes aren't required, so the following is sufficient...
General ''
(A space followed by two single-quotes.)

Regards,
Brian.
