String to Number (SAP format)

Hello. It has an extract from the SAP system and negative values ​​are shown differently than normal.
A negative value is like this “136141.60-”
See that the negative sign appears at the end.

The column used is as a String and I need to convert it to a number.

In Power Query, I can change the column type to number and the system automatically identifies it and changes the value to “-136141.60”.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

No worries for the help :slight_smile:
