hi Folks
Hope you are well. I have a customer who constantly uses the following format in Excel..


So she goes in every time and highlights her cells and uses Format Cells - Custom
and changes #,##0.00;[Red]-#,##0.00 to #,##0.00;[Red](#,##0.00).
 I wonder if there is a more elegant way to do this...so I was wondering about (a) adding it to her QAT and how that would be done...(unless via a macro) or someway to customise her startup file...

Thanks as always for your help

as rgonzo says plus - once created it can be added as a quick style in the format ribbon and if she saves the workbook with the custom style as a template in Xlstart she will have it available to new workbooks as she opens them
