    Hi all,

    Quick question. I have a calculation in a query, and I want the negative
    returns to display with paranthesis. How do I do this in access?

    Hi Schnydes,

    Try the following in the Field row of the query grid:

    Product: Format([Field1]*[Field2],"0;(0)")
    or
    Product: Format([Field1]*[Field2],"0;(0);;""Null""")

    if you want the word "Null" to be displayed if either Field1 or Field2 is
    null. Replace Field1 and Field2 with the actual names of your fields.


    Tom
