Thumbs up Answer: Dollar sign left justified - data right justified - large space

It sounds like you may have accidentally added extra spaces between the dollar sign and the data in your cell. Here's how you can fix it:
  1. Double-click on the cell to enter edit mode.
  2. Place your cursor just to the right of the dollar sign.
  3. Press the backspace key to remove any extra spaces.
  4. Press the delete key to remove any extra spaces to the left of the data.
  5. Press the enter key to exit edit mode and see if the spacing issue has been resolved.

If the spacing issue persists, you may need to adjust the cell formatting. Here's how:
  1. Right-click on the cell and select "Format Cells" from the dropdown menu.
  2. In the Format Cells dialog box, select the "Alignment" tab.
  3. Under "Horizontal," select "Right" to right justify the data.
  4. Under "Vertical," select "Center" to center the data within the cell.
  5. Under "Indent," set the "Left" and "Right" values to 0 to remove any extra spacing.
  6. Click "OK" to apply the formatting changes.

These steps should help you resolve the issue with the dollar sign being left justified and the data being right justified with a large space in between. Let me know if you have any other questions!

You have the formatting set to Accounting. If you want to $ to be next to the
numbers, change the formatting to Currency.

Change your number format from Accounting to Currency.

Alternatively, to keep the other Accounting format elements, use
Format/Cells/Number/Custom

_($#,##0.00_);_($(#,##0.00);_($"-"??_);_(@_)
