Can someone advise of the custome format to display the opposite in percentages

e.g. my formula = =(D4-C4)/C4*-1

If the result is -21%, i want to view this on the ss as 21% and vica versa

Many thanks

I think that's a really bad idea, but anyway:
-0%;0%
will do it. :)

Because I think at some point someone will either get very confused by the fact the actual value has the opposite sign to the way it looks, or won't notice and will base some calculation off it.
