    Hey,
    A regular percentage formatting in excel will give me: -35.50%, however, my auditors are requiring it to look like this: (35.50%)
    I've been playing around with the custom formatting, but don't seem to be able to figure it out.
    Please help!
    Thanks:o)

    Do I understand you right;
    you always want the percentage to be positive and in a ().

    If so, if your number(s) is in cell F20
    then type this in Cell G20

    =IF(F20>0;"("&F20&"%"&")";"("&-1*F20&"%"&")")

    Stulli

    please correct me if Im wrong.
