### Title

display + and - Operators after calculation

### Post

hi guys

i need some help understanding how positive and negative numbers are displayed

i have a field XXX that accepts values from a drop down (between -10 and + 10 with increments of 0.25)

the selected number has to be displayed as entered ie -5.00 or +7.50 etc

i have a second field YYY that accepts values from a drop down (between 0 and +10 with increments of 0.25)

in the third field ZZZ i have the DB auto enter the field value by calculation (ZZZ=XXX+YYY)

the problem is that when the result is displayed and the value is greater than zero (positive) it loses the + sign

how do i display the + sign before positive numbers

negatives seem ok

i have tried searching online but not sure i have the terminology correct, so any help or pointers would be highly appreciated

thanks
