I have the following formula and it shows in the cell as a NEGATIVE FIGURE.

=IF(M27<=0, M27,"")

Is there any way I can change it so it calculates as formula above but it shows it as a POSITIVE figure. So in the cell if M27 is a negative figure I need it displayed in the cell the formula is in to be positive as its on the credit side of a sheet.
