TotalQty | TotalAmount

-10 | -1000
-12 | -2000
20 | 12000

Try this
private void dataGridView1_CellFormatting(object sender, DataGridViewCellFormattingEventArgs e)
    // If the column is the Artist column, check the
    // value.
    if (this.dataGridView1.Columns[e.ColumnIndex].Name == "yourColumnName")
        if (e.Value != null)
            // Check for the string "pink" in the cell.
            int Value = e.Value;
            if (Value<0))
                e.CellStyle.BackColor = Color.Pink;



Hope this helps
