    Hello

    I need to design a query that only shows the values that are negative. Is
    this possible?

    I have tried <0 with my one table and have gotten no results also with the
    field type as number but I was able to find the negitive values with this in
    the criteria

    Like "-*"

    Is it possible that the filed with the "numbers" in it is a text field?
    If it is a text field and for some reason you don't want to change it
    (likely you should) then how consistent are the negative "numbers" That is,
    is the first character always a "-" or a "(" and that character never
    appears in any other records in that table as the first character?

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
