Hi There.

Due to that my data provider doesn't have all data they put in a negative number in the data (se green markers in attachment).

When I make a calculation in Field Calculator I therefor also get a negative number (see the yellow mark), but my problem is that i have to use the calculation for a buffering, and point buffer doesn't allow negative numbers.

How can i get rid of these negative numbers in the calculation (I'm not allowed to remove the providers data, and some how i still need the information about that something is missing).

By VB i Field calculator or by ArcPy in Field Calculator or do I have to do it manually ??

Do not hope manually, because there is a lot of them and a lot of datasets.
