subtracting a negative number
Could someone tell me how to write a beast mode if subtracting a negative number
ex. have a freight charge of 199.68 and want to subract a negative 95.36, the calculation is coming out to be 295.04 instead of 104.32
thanks

There doesn't seem to be an issue. 199.68(95.36)=295.04
If you want the answer to be 104.32, you need to add the two values together.
199.68+(95.36)=104.32
I hope this helps.

199.68  (95.36) = 295.32 is mathematically correct
if what you want is to subtract the absolute value of a column ... use ABS()
depending of your case you can do this several different ways, depending of your need
Beastmode 1
`field1`  ABS(`Field2`)
Beastmode 2
ABS(`field1`)  ABS(`Field2`)Domo Arigato!
