need to convert number(float) to string and concatenate with brakets

Hi Guys, 

 

I have a financial statement in which I want to show the negative inside brackets. 

 

At the moment I have applied conditional formatting to change the color to red but need to add brackets to.

 

Please can someone tell me how can I achieve this. 

 

 Column name is Variance.

Hi @ahsanlhcgov,

 

We can add a calculated column using the formula. Then we can get the result as we need.

 

Column = IF(Table2[Variance]>=0,""&Table2[Variance]&"","(" &Table2[Variance]&")")
