im attempting to make a spreadsheet for end-of-day cash verification.. attached is a word document screen shot.

the trouble im running into is that I have cells A22:A30 = cells A8:A16.. if there is a blank, it populates a 0.. i would rather it populate nothing at all.

Any way to correct this?

Thanks!

use this in A22 and then copy it to A9, A10, etc.: =IF(A8><0,A8+0,"")
The 2 sets of quotation marks tell it to leave the cell blank in case of a zero and the >< will give you the correct value if the number happens to be negative.

If you want the easy way out, go to "Tools", "Options", "View", and uncheck "Zero Values".

or use the IF funtion:

PHP:
=IF(A2="","",A2)
this will leave the cell blank if the outher cell is bank (in this case A2) so put that in any cell + if A2 = blank then the cell the formular is in will be blank. If A2 has data in it then the cell with the formula in in will have that data as well.

in your example for cells A22-A30 use:


PHP:
=IF(A22="","",A8)
=IF(A23="","",A9)
=IF(A24="","",A10)
=IF(A25="","",A11)
=IF(A26="","",A12)
=IF(A27="","",A13)
=IF(A28="","",A14)
=IF(A29="","",A15)
=IF(A30="","",A16)
That should work fine:cool:

none of those worked.. except for no zero values bit.. im uploading the file itself to my webspace.. take a look at it, maybe im doing something wrong.

i want a22:a30 to feed directly from a8:a16 and not show zeros if its blank.
