I'm using Excel 2007 and ran into a problem when creating a formula that

references two cells (C8 and F8) where users will enter a negative number in

each cell. So for example, the user would enter the following numbers:

Cell C8 ------> -4424.872

Cell F8 -------> -4278.982

To subtract both numbers I created the formula: SUM(C8-F8). But the

problem is that instead of returning a negative number, the result is shown

as a positive number. I'm not sure why this happening. Could someone point

me in the right direction?

Thanks for the time and expertise!
