conditional formatting text

Hi All,

 

I have an issue with reporting which I hope someone can help with. We want negative values to appear with brackets around it and to be red text. I know conditional formatting can change the number's colour but by adding brackets around a number instead of the negative sign changes it into a text and conditional formation is no longer an option. Does anyone have an idea how I can display -1,349 as (1,349) and 7,467 to remain in the same format.

 

Thanks

Hi @Bilal_321321,

 

As of now, conditional formatting works only for numeric fields. But you could vote for the idea below:

Hopefully, we shall see it in future updates.
