    I have a document imported to Excel which has values in it. Unfortunately the credit values have CR after them. Is there an easy way to format them to a minus sign or brakets, PLEASE?

    Not sure I understood fully, but this should help

    =SUBSTITUTE(A1,"CR","")*-1
    OR
    =SUBSTITUTE(A1,"CR","")*1
    Both case sensitive

    It will be a real number.

    Thanks Guys Works excellently using Substitute:

    Output was this: 237.36CR
    Result was this: -237.36

    Which is just what I wanted to achieve.

    Cheers again
