    Thumbs up

    Hello All,
    I have a value in cell A1 that is going to show a negative number all the time. That number can vary from $1.00 to $1,000,000. I would like cell B1 to turn that number to a positive. Is there a formula that can put into cell B1 that would be able to do this?

    Thanks in advance for all the help

    Or if you are certain that A1 will always be negative, you can use =-A1
