How do I set the way negative numbers are displayed?

There are two options to display negative numbers; with a minus sign or in brackets/parenthesis. This setting affects all areas of the Checkbook including all reports and payroll. When typing in a negative number, use a minus sign regardless of which display format is selected.

  1. On the Checkbook screen, click Setup.
  2. In the Setup menu, click Negative Format. Clicking Negative Format will change the display format to the setting not currently selected.
