SSIS: Using wild search in derived column

Hi All,

Is there a way I can use a wild card expression for a derived column in SSIS? I want to create a derived column which would output, for each row, either "A" or "B" depending on whether the amount in another column is a negative figure or a positive figure. So the wildcard I'm searching for is '%-%'

The column I want to perform the expression on is a float type.

Or maybe this is not the right approach?

Since the column is numeric you should be able to do a greater than zero / less than zero.
