.... Some [financial institutions] do the deposits as positive and the debits as negative, and

Of course.
Clever way:
o Enter -1 in a spare cell somewhere.
o Copy that value.
o Select the range of values to be negated.
o Go to Edit | Paste Special... (or Ctrl+Shift+V).
o In the Paste Special dialogue, under Operations, select Multiply.

Cute. I never knew about that, and now wonder when those Operations started.

reading this thread has been rewarded by elegance.
