    In "J" Col I have Etended Sales Figures.
    Some may be -Negative.

    In "O" Col I have Inventory values which were extracted from our MRP program.
    If any of the figures in J are negative, I need to change the inventory value on the same line to a negative.

    IS there a way to do it without adding another column, etc. I'm going to try and do it in Conditional Formatting but I don't think that will work..

    Thanks,
    Zac

    Formatting does not change the internal representation of a value.

    I can Use conditional formatting, selecting "formula" and entering something like: =If(K2<0,M2*-1,).
    I can get the number to to change to red, but not negative for some reason.
