    +ve and -ve values into 2 columns

    Hi all,

    I have just changed banks and when I d/load the statements they come as a CSV file. The issue is the debits and credits are all in one column so when it is a credit it is a positive number ie. 2.98 but a debit is shown as a negative number ie -2.98. I was wanting to leave all the +ve values in one column and move all the -ve values to the next column so I can sum the columns for my accounts.
    Any help would be very well received.

    Thanks in advance

    Ali G

    Re: +ve and -ve values into 2 columns

    You can't just leave positive numbers where they are and move negative numbers ... except with VBA. You could use two separate formulae in Credit and Debit columns.

    For example, columns F and G could be:
    Formula: copy to clipboard

    and
    Formula: copy to clipboard

    and copied down. You could always hide column E.

    Just put the formulae in separate columns, and adjust the column reference (E) as necessary. Then copy down and see what you get. You could adjust the Debit column to
    Formula: copy to clipboard

    to change the sign.

    No formulas or VBA needed...

    If you want to remove the minus sign after the move, then select the entire column and use the Text To Columns dialog box (Data tab, Data Tools group)... Delimited, minus sign in Other field, Finish.

    If you want to retain the minus sign after the move, then select the entire column and use the Replace dialog box (CTRL+H) to replace the minus sign with, say, the vertical bar followed by a minus sign (|-) and then use Text To Columns as above, but use the vertical bar in the Other field instead.
