Hi,

Hi All.
I have rows with positive and negative

<tr><td headers="MYCOL1">Sad Moving</td><td align="right" headers="MYCOL2"><a href="--mylink---">$33,131,131</a></td></tr>
<tr><td headers="MYCOL1">Air Flight</td><td align="right" headers="MYCOL2"><a href="--mylink---">-$22,121,121</a></td></tr>
<tr><td headers="MYCOL1">Glidding along</td><td align="right" headers="MYCOL2"><a href="--mylink---">$8,301,177</a></td></tr>
<tr><td headers="MYCOL1" style="background-color:blue"><b>Finished</b></td><td align="right" headers="MYCOL2" ><b>-$11,111,111</b></td></tr>

Open in new window


I would like to change the color of the negative numbers to red, remove the negative sign and put brackets around them

<$11,111,111>

thank you, Bill

Something like this will get you going:

$('a').each(function() {
    value = $(this).text();
    if (value.indexOf("-") >= 0) {
        $(this).html("<" + value.slice(2) + ">").css('color', 'red');
    }
});

Open in new window

It will loop through all the A tags, and check if the text contains a minus sign. If it does, it trims off the first 2 characters (-$), wraps it in <> and sets the color to red
