Negative P&L expenses

The P&L shows some expenses as negative numbers skewing the totals. Cannot find out why. Any suggestions?

    Can you please capture one or more images of the parts of your Quicken window showing the issue, sensitive information blacked out as necessary to protect your privacy but annotated to describe the situation, and attach the image(s) here?

    Please save images to files of file type PNG, JPG, or GIF only. They're easier to work with than PDF files.

    [Removed - Unhelpful]  Do not need the sarcasm. I can work around the fluke since only three of the expenses show as negative numbers. Just wanted to know if there was an easy fix or if I was doing something wrong. [Removed - Off Topic/Unhelpful]

    Expenses should be negative amounts.  The positive one must be a refund or you entered the signs backwards on that split(s)?  When you make a split transaction like from a paycheck you need to double check if the amount is going the right way on the categories.  It's easy to get the signs reversed.

    AND inputting the amounts backwards is easy if you use the AMOUNTS column.

    Discovered my error. I coded the reimbursable items as expenses on the invoice to client and again when I paid the expense listed on business credit card payment. This double listing resulted in the negative numbers. Changed the invoice coding and all is well. Thanks for your suggestions [Removed - Disruptive]
