Hi everyone.

Suppose I have raw data where minus signs are in a trailing position. Thus, for example, instead of
-12, you have
12-

Is there a direct way to read this? Or is there a program out there to handle it? I can write code to handle it, but I just wonder if there is anything I'm overlooking or if someone already has done it.

Thanks,
-- David
