Converting negative numbers in a range of cells to zero

Greetings!

How do I create a function that will change a range of cells that are
all negative numbers to zero? I want to keep the orginal negative
numbers as well. Thank you!!!

Use a help column and a formula like

=MAX(0,A1)

copy down/across, then copy and paste special as values in place

In another range use:
=MAX(0,A1), where A1 is the first cell in the original range.
Copy as needed.

You need a formula in a 2nd column: =MAX(A1,0)
