In a report I have an expression in Col A.
colA expression
= sum(colB)/sum(ColC)
This works.

However, wherever there is a zero after the expression runs,  colA returns Nan.

What is the best way to eliminate this problem?

try this:

Iif(ISNOTHING(sum(colB)/sum(colC), 0, sum(colB)/sum(colC))
0

THE ACCEPTED SOLUTION IS WRONG.

THE CORRECT SOLUTION IS:

Iif(ISNOTHING(sum(colB)), 0, sum(colB)/sum(colC))

If colB is blank or not there, it will return a 0 instead.
