Here are the steps:
Right-click on the field you with to format with the RED option.
Select Format Field.
Click on the Font tab.
Where the Color drop-down list is, to the right, there is an X-2 button. Click that. The Formula Workshop will open up.
In the Format Editor, enter the following:
If CurrentFieldValue < 0 Then
    crRed
Else
    DefaultAttribute

Open in new window

Save and Close.
This should work for you.
