I have this formula in a spreadsheet I'm working on:

=IF(COUNT(B7,J7)=2,B7-J7,"")

When it displays the number it is negative when it should be positive and positive when it should be negative. How do I reverse this?

Thanks to both of you. Both suggestions work fine. I should have figured it out myself.. Must have had a brain freeze.
