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
