  I try to set a cell format "Number" with negative
number display in a (1234.00) layout. Hoever, in Format
Cell, it shows negative number layout as

  (1234.00) is replaced. I try to modify the format
in 'Custom' so that it layout looks like (1234.00). But
my Excel does not recognize it as a number format and the
negative number layout is shown as same as above.

  What can I do???
