I am trying to create a simple column to add numbers with dollar figures. When I have it formatted with just decimals (9999.99) it works fine. When I format the column with dollar signs as I want it ($9999.99) it adds $9900 to whatever figure is in the cell. So if I enter 42.50, when I leave the cell it reads $9942.50.

Actually when I tried using some larger numbers it just adds a nine to whatever is missing, so $780 becomes $9780.

What is going on with that? Is there a fix?

I tried throwing out permissions, logging out and starting again. Same deal. None of the other number options have the problem—only the one with the dollar sign.

Any help appreciated.
