parenthesis to denote negative numbers in report

P: n/a
Hi all. What is very simple in Excel, may not exist in Access. Does
anyone know how to denote -1 as (1) in an Access Report. The main
choices when formatting doesn't seem to include the parenthesis
option. thanks.

Set the Format property of the text box to something like this:
$#,##0.00;($#,##0.00)
