how do i keep the difference between two numbers always positive?
e.g
24-36= -12 (how do i change -12 to +12?)
 

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.
