A cell contains a negative number that I need to turn into a

-123 becomes 123.

I checked the Math section, but didn't find a function to do this:

Is there a way?

Can't you multiply by -1?

That depends on the desired result. If you want all numbers to be
positive, you need to use ABS(). If you want to change the values of all
numbers (positives become negatives and negative become positives),
you'd multiply by -1.
