I tried using the replace function- but could not figure out how to change a positive amount to a negative amound easily...

Anyone know a quick way to do this another way?

Thanks!
 

Excel Facts

Copy formula down without changing references
If you have =SUM(F2:F49) in F50; type Alt+' in F51 to copy =SUM(F2:F49) to F51, leaving the formula in edit mode. Change SUM to COUNT.

1. Enter -1 into an unused cell
2. Copy the cell containing -1
3. Select the values you want to change
4. Paste Special... Values Multiply
5. Clear cell containing value entered at step 1.
