    Hi whoiswct
    Something along these lines!
    Format cells > Number > Custom > Type: "+0;-0" (Not the double quotes)

    Thanks. Can I keep "0" as "0" rather than "+0".

    I got it by "+###,###,###;-###,###,###;0"

    Hey whosiwct,

    If you're interested in learning the science behind the custom number formats, check out Jon Peltier's article on the subject. He covers it very well.
