I have a formula:

{#RTotalEssl} +{@Shared Essl}-{@shared essl deletes}

If running total is zero, and Shared Essl field is negative, it will not display as negative. If there is a value> 0 in running total, then i will get a negative number for the total.

example: 0 + -1297 = 0
          480 + -1297 = -817

How do I get the total to be a negative if my running total is a zero ?

Actually it appears that your running total may be returning a null, since a Null + anything would still be basically Null. Check your formula and see if it using 'Default Values for Nulls' (good to be using anyhow).

If it is not that, then I am not sure what is going on.

Thank you so much! Actually I did figure this out before I saw your post, but I appreciate the reply!   Didn't realize that zero was treated differently. so i learned something new today!
