    I need to list all my negative values in the sheet as:
    m8
    as opposed to the normal:
    -8
    and so on. My issue is that I need to also find the minimum in the range as well using the min() function. How can I have Excel display m8 and use it as the numerical value -8?

    Your help is appreciated as I am horribly frustrated at this point.

    Use this custom format on the cells:

    #,##0_);"m"#,##0

    Doing so will still allow you to use it as a value.
