Default Accounting Format

Hi,

I've placed a formula in a cell, but the dollar sign shows directly to the
left of the number. I choose the option $#,##0.00;($#,##0.00).

Is there a way to use the Excel type accounting format where there are
spaces between the dollar sign and the numbers so the dollar signs line up
evenly against the left side of the cell?

Thanks,

Michele

Put a Right Aligned Tab Stop in the cells and then insert a tab space
between the $ and the # in the formatting switch. You will of course need
to use Ctrl+tab to insert the tab spaces if the field is in a table cell.

Note, you can't use a Decimal Tab Stop in this situation.

I should have also mentioned that the paragraph formatting in the cell needs
to be left aligned.

Yes that worked. I knew it was something like that, but just couldn't get
the correct combination. Thanks.

I may take you up on your offer sometime. I believe is using the experts.
I'm a certified project management professional (PMP) and couldn't do without
you pros.

Thanks,

Michele

Can you do this within a field? My field keeps putting in 2 tabs even though
i only have one tab marker!?

Yes,

{=SUM(ABOVE) \# "$[tab]#,##0.00;($#,##0.00)"}

with a tab space inserted where [tab] appears above works for me.

In case you have any negative numbers, you probably want:

{=SUM(ABOVE) \# "$[tab]#,##0.00[space];$[tab](#,##0.00)"}

I am not sure if the [space] will work. It's an attempt to line up the
decimal points with positive and negative numbers.

I try to make my workflow as easy and simple as possible, so if I have the opportunity to use different software and technologies, I'll do it. Now I've found an excellent a online bookkeeping software, which seems very convenient to me. I'm already starting to notice that my employees in the accounting department have an easier time dealing with documents and data, as well as more time for other important tasks.
