Hi guys, need a little help with some number formatting. Lets say I have 2 numbers as an example: Col A = 32 Col B = 37 Col C gives the result of (5) & Col D = @column C/@Column B which results in -13.51% Is there a way to display the result as: (13.51%).

Basically I want to change the font color from black to green while maintaining the same formatting. I tried Custom 0.0%;[Green](0.0%) but it shows a lime green that you cannot read on the screen.

Thanks for your time.

Show numbers in thousands?
Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand

Can I add a new twist to this, I guess maybe what I might need is conditional formatting. If I were to perform this calculation monthly, the next month Col A = 40 & Col B is the same then I would need the result to be displayed in red. Is this possible?

Thanks again

As this is a totally different question, you will need to start a new thread. Thanks.
