Context: Looking to display large numbers used in financial reporting & analysis in an abbreviated easier-to-read format.
I currently have the GS custom number format as follows:
Which renders positive numbers as desired, e.g. 2338300000 displays as 2,338.3. However, negative numbers aren't working & display as follows:
If I remove the parentheses the negative numbers display in the abbreviated format.
I've looked at the documentation for the GS API https://developers.google.com/sheets/api/guides/formats#meta_instructions but it doesn't seem to have the syntax rules that explain this behavior (or maybe I'm just reading it wrong).
