Displaying Currency as Negative Value

Hi All,

I have an object Amount. Based on a condition, i.e if movement_type is 500 then i need to display the amount field as negative value.

IF movement_type = 500 then amount should be displayed as negative value.If amount is $10 then it shuld be displayed as -$10.

How do we proceed to display amount as negative value.Do we need to do this at report level or at can i go ahead at update routine level.Please let me know how to do.

    Try out the follwing formula using Boolean Operations

    (movement_type == 500) * (Amount - (2*Amount)) + (movement_type <> 500) * (Amount)

    try with (Amount - (2Amount))* because *(Amount * (-1))* does not work.
