Negative Numbers



I'm trying to add a minus sign or  Parenthesis to the neagative numbers in a measure on my table visual.

Do i need to do it through DAX? beacuse i don't find a way to do it on the report..

 This is the muesure:

Change From PM = IF([Total Reports] = [DIFF from PM],BLANK(), [Total Reports] - [Reports Previous month])
Help will be much appreciated!

@SHAKEDALROY Can you share an image of what you are trying to do? and how you want the output to be?



@LP2803 for ex - the second line in the Change From PM column is a negative number but it doesn't show it.

it suppused to be -24,986 or (24,986)

I'm unable to produce your issue with my sample data.


But I think this might help

= Format([Measure],"#,##.#0;(#,##.#0)")

Make sure that you are not using ABS (Absolute) in meausre
