Using Nonstandard Numeric Sign Conventions (Sign)

Use the Sign expression type to manage nonstandard numeric sign conventions. Numbers with leading and trailing minus signs and numbers within parentheses are interpreted as negative numbers. You can also use other leading and trailing characters to indicate negative numbers.

Numbers within <> are also treated as negative. For example, if you specify (100.00) and <100.00> both are treated as negative numbers.

If positive numbers are unsigned (1,000.00), and negative numbers are followed by CR (1,000.00CR), the expression is Sign=,CR.

Use parameters that follow this form: Sign=[Positive String],[Negative String].For example, if positive numbers are followed by DR (1,000.00DR), and negative numbers are followed by CR (1,000.00CR), specify: Sign=DR,CR.
