If your data in currency then go to Format/Cells and select Currency then
negetive red numbers from the list on the right. If regular numbers then use
a custom format:
#,##0.00;[Red]-#,##0.00

Another way to do this is Conditional Formatting.
Go to 'Format' - 'Conditional formatting' and set criteria for what you want
to do.
