    How do you format negative number in (Red) & in parenthesis in Tableau?

    Stanley Nwador

      Is there a [Red] custom number format like Excel?


      I'm looking to use a customer number format like this "$"#,##0;[Red]("$"#,##0).  This is the format Excel uses, and Tableau accepts the format, but it does not display negatives with red text.


      Is there a different syntax to use or is it not an option?  I know there are lots of workarounds, but I'm interested in this specific format. And I need it a parenthesis too.


      Thank you
