For some reason, excel just stopped printing my worksheets with negative numbers in red.  So they all show up black, but with parentheses. How do I fix this?  It's driving me nuts!

Hello,

If I understand your question clearly, your printer is not printing your negative numbers in red brackets?

For the negative numbers to be printed in red brackets, you've got to print the document in colored; not black and white... I guess that's what you mean?

Looking forward to hear from you

@Abiola1  I know.  It's not checked.

@Abiola1 Before it was printing my negative numbers in brackets and in red. Now it won't.

Kkk.. If possible, do print the stuff on another print so as to ascertain where the issue occurred...

Or you can create another Excel file with red brackets (negative numbers) and print with your current printer... Let's see whether it works

@Abiola1   Already tried.  Didn't work either.
