how do you make negative numbers show up as 0 in Excel?
I want to force a formula I have to show up as a zero if the value is less
than zero. I have tried embedding something in the formula to do this, but it will not work. anyone have any suggestions? Is there a way to format a field to display zero when the value is less than zero? I am using Excel 2000.

Hello !
go in Format Menu/cells customize the type is 0;"0";0 first argument is positive numbers second is negatives numbers third is 0 numbers so the "0" between quotes tells to write 0 the 0 without quotes means the number itself will display

tiah's solution will change the DISPLAY but not the value. In other words,
although the cell might show 0, any formula that referenced the cell would still use the negative value. If you need the VALUE to be 0, use =MAX(your current formula,0) "djjny" wrote: > I want to force a formula I have to show up as a zero if the value is less > than zero.

I offered a different solution only because sometimes the posters don't
realize the consequences of what they are asking for. You have a good day, too "tiah" wrote: > Hi Duke ! > > I know this is a display, but i answered to the question ! > > he ask for a way to "show" 0 and ask for a "format" to "display" > > =) > > sure i would use your formula > > have a nive day ! > >
