TABLE FILE CAR
COMPUTE SALES_PLUS/A21=IF PCT.SALES GT 0 THEN '+'|SALES_TXT ELSE '-'|SALES_TXT;
Ram, a made a tiny adjustment to your sample code because a double minus sign is displayed when a value is negative (i.e. --20.00%) and a value of 0 is displayed as -0.00% which may or may not be desired.
TABLE FILE CAR
COMPUTE PCT_SALES/D20.2 = IF COUNTRY EQ 'JAPAN' THEN -1 * PCT.SALES ELSE PCT.SALES; NOPRINT
COMPUTE SALES_TXT/A20=FTOA(PCT_SALES,'(D12.2%)', SALES_TXT);
COMPUTE SALES_PLUS/A21=IF PCT_SALES GT 0 THEN '+' | SALES_TXT ELSE SALES_TXT;
But since it's not a numeric field anymore I can not use any kind of Totals
You're right about that. You cannot RECOMPUTE nor SUMMARIZE the percentage because it is now a text field but what you can do is using a RECAP to calculate the total variance and then a SUBFOOT to display it along with any other totals you need. I know, that's a little extra work and you won't get nice borders around your subfoot components but hey, at least the +/- signs are going to be there
The COMPUTE is simply a means to produce a couple of negative numbers in the output. Since the percentage column contains only numerics during the WebFOCUS processing phase, you can still SUMMARIZE the column.
DEFINE FILE CAR
SALES/D12.2 = SALES ;
TABLE FILE CAR
SUM PCT.SALES NOPRINT
AND COMPUTE PCTSALES/D6.1% = IF (PCT.SALES LE 15) THEN (-1 * PCT.SALES) ELSE PCT.SALES ; AS 'Sales %'
BY COUNTRY AS 'Country'
BY CAR AS 'Car'
ON TABLE SUMMARIZE
ON TABLE HOLD FORMAT HTMTABLE
var td = document.getElementsByTagName('td'); /* search for 'td' HTML tags */
for (i=0; i<td.length; i++) /* for instances where a td tag is found... */
if (td[i].innerHTML.indexOf('%') >= 0 && /* if the HTML text after the td tag contains '%' */
td[i].innerHTML.indexOf('-') != 0 && /* but not '-', to exclude negative values */
td[i].innerHTML.indexOf('0.0') != 0 && /* and not '0.0', to exclude zero values */
td[i].innerHTML.indexOf('100') != 0 && /* and not '100', to exclude the total */
td[i].innerHTML.indexOf('Sales') != 0) /* and not 'Sales', to exclude the column title */
td[i].innerHTML = '+' + td[i].innerHTML ; /* then add '+' to the front of the HTML text */
i agree, Dave LEAD='+' TRAIL='%' and my favorite... TRAIL='pp' (for second differences) are features in a very old econometric model building software that i used...it went away along with the economy... but it was bliss on a stick!

Tiny bit of a problem with totals and subtotals: since the format of the subtotal field is taken from the previous row's field when using dynamic formatting - when the last row is negative the + currency symbol is not displayed.
