In formatting , a comma is used to divide by 1000 ; thus , a number such as 3537 , when formatted as #,.000 will display 3.537

For displaying negative numbers in parentheses , just include them in the format string as follows :


Putting together both of them , a format string :


will display what you want.

By the way , the final value of -2,534,610 will be displayed as (2,535) due to rounding.
