    I need a little help here with Excel. What I want to do is this: When a check box is checked I want a text field value to be displayed as negative, with a minus sign. Please help!

    Thank you

    Are you using a Forms toolbar checkbox?

    If "Yes", you can link it to a cell -- say G1. G1 will then show TRUE for checked and FALSE for unchecked.

    Then if your text field value occupies G2, you can use:


    in G3.

    If you want the action of checking/unchecking to toggle the value of the actual text field between +ive/-ive & vice versa, you'll need VBA.
