Hello,

select the cell and on the Home ribbon select "General" in the number format drop-down.

In your screenshot, the number format is showing negative values in parentheses, like

-123 is formatted to show as (123)

You can change the number format for the cell with the formatting options for the cell.

There are many ways to format numbers, and negative values can be displayed with many options: leading - sign, red, round brackets and more. You can change the format with the formatting settings for the cell.

Right-click the cell and select "Format Cells". Then select any of the pre-defined number formats or create your own preferred format.

cheers, teylyn
