+/- function in Excel formulas?

I’m having a brain meltdown. Something so simple, but I’m too tired to refigure this. I’m doing some formulas and I need to have a column of numbers forget that they’re actually negative numbers (they all need to be positive integers for the next formula). So how do I do this?



where A1 is the cell with the negative (or positive) number…

That’s perfect. Thanks Phil!
