Hi Basha..

What I'm asking is how do I set up a formula that will automatically take the value of, and reverse positive/negative value each time?

If that's what you are asking, then multiplying by -1 is the answer

100 * -1 = -100 -100 * -1 = 100

Hi

Please find the Solutions below :
• You can create a formula field to store the Negated amount by multiplying it by -1. (It is preferrable only if you need to show it on the standard detail page).
• You can update the same field you are storing the original value using trigger. If you need not maintain the negated amount seperately.
• If you are using VF page , you can do it through apex on controller side.
Don't forget to mark the answer as best answer or like it in case it helps you. :)
