Discount Should be Entered as a Positive Value, Not a Negative One

Your client wants to see the discount as a positive number, not as a negative number. This is a bit confusing, but here is a screen shot of a discount that should appear to your client as a "positive" discount (also see the attached file).

The discount will look like a negative number in Collaborati, but it is designed to reduce the line item amount (and is thus considered a "positive" discount by your client).
The formula for the Line Item Total here is :
Line Item Total = Line Item Number of Units * Line Item Unit Cost + Line Item Adjustment Amount
630 = 2.00 * 350 + (-70)
