Hi Chris, and welcome.
PDF files often pose some interesting challenges, but I haven't seen this one mentioned before. There are a couple of things I'd look at, and based on that, a possible solution comes to mind.
First, and I know it seems obvious, but have you ensured that your fields are wide enough to pick up the leading minus sign? I've seen some reports where the minus sign is nowhere near the value. Like 10 posititons or more away.
If however you can indeed see that it's included (grey shaded), and is a Numeric field, and is still showing in the Table as a positive value, that would be really odd.
In that case, I'd define it as a Character field, and use a few functions to properly convert that string into the correct value. Provided, of course, that you could see the leading minus in your Character field in the Table. If you still don't see it as a Character field, then perhaps someone with more PDF experience will chime in with better advice.
Does any of this apply? Do you need help with the functions?
Thanks Kruncher. Unfortunately, I have modified the column widths and it didn't resolve the issue. To the best of my knowledge, the column in question is setup as numeric. I went as far as selecting a row that has a negative value for my template. When I bring the data into a table, the column header shows the negative sign but the actual data excludes the negative. Is it possible to send you the pdf file and monarch file for your review and testing?
I am somewhat of a novice user of Monarch. Know how to create basic templates and simple functions. Will need some assistance with advanced features.
