For testing I used your figures, pasted into SYSIN at column 1. So you'll need to change 1,15 to 106,15.

Look up SFF and EDIT/SIGNS in the manual.

For your next posting, please use the Code tags, which preserve spacing, for any data or code that you post.

//NUMEDIT  EXEC PGM=SORT
//SORTIN DD *
        642.32-
     27,310.52-
      8,272.06
    218,232.06-
  1,459,410.83-
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN DD *
 OPTION COPY
 INREC OVERLAY=(1:1,15,SFF,
       EDIT=(SIII,III,IIT.TT),SIGNS=(,-))
