if you need 2 expresions with the same formula, consider turning the formula into a variable . That way you can control the formula in one place and not have it duplicated for any future maintenance.

If(([Invoice Amount YTD]-[Invoice Amount Previous YTD])/[Invoice Amount YTD] < 0,

     Num(([Invoice Amount YTD]-[Invoice Amount Previous YTD])/[Invoice Amount YTD],'#,##0.00%') & ' ▼',

Num(([Invoice Amount YTD]-[Invoice Amount Previous YTD])/[Invoice Amount YTD],'#,##0.00%'))

and font color for the value:

if(Column("column number in chart") < 0,RGB(255,0,0)) // will be in red

u could use CHR(9650) for up arrow and CHR(9660) for down arrow. but i would recommend 2 different columns. since that will perform better when compared to a complicated if statement.
