Report: General Ledger - Set Debit balances to be positive and credit balance negative (disregard account type)

For some reason the general ledger summary movement TAB has been set up to print the balance as positive or negative based on the "Type" of account rather than debit balances being positive and credit negative. We as accountants utilise this to post information to our MYOB AE Ledger and have to export to excel to adjust the number and make the total movement for the year come back to $0. This seems to me to be a riduculous treatment and I cannot fathom why the report would be built in this manner.
