At the risk of being a trifle confusing, you can achieve the same result with:
=IF(C9&C12="","",C12/$C$9+0.001)

In your Support :
=IF(AND(C9<>"",C12<>""),(($C$12/$C$9)+0.001),"")

Open in new window

Please Follow Syntax
=if(and(condition1, condition2), TrueResult, FalseResult)

The original poster is after an AND/OR statement @byundt is correct as this will trap both conditions and is also using the correct functionality in his first post but shows a compatible syntax in his second post for older version of Excel.

@jagadishdulal only shows the syntax for if both cells were empty.

Unless I am still asleep, this
=IF(C9&C12="","",C12/$C$9+0.001)
appears to be the same as
=IF(AND(C9="",C12=""),"",C12/$C$9+0.001)
rather than
=IF(OR(C9="",C12=""),"",C12/$C$9+0.001)

With the benefit of some sleep, I now see that my two formulas may return different results--my goof! The first one is an OR and the second an AND with respect to cells C9 and C12 being blank.

If the goal is to avoid DIV/0! error value, then you need:
=IF(N($C$9)=0,"",C12/$C$9+0.001)
This formula traps C9 being either 0 or blank

If the goal is also to avoid 0 as a meaningless result, then you need:
=IF(OR(N($C$9)=0,N(C12)=0),C12/$C$9+0.001)
This formula traps both C9 and C12 as being either 0 or blank
