How to make a formula be invisible in SSRS 2012

I have composed a report in SQL Reporting Services 2012 (SSRS).  In one of the cells, I have a formula that I want to use in the future but not right now.  

So, I don't want data to appear in the cell.  But, I want the cell itself to appear.  In other words, I want the cell to appear without data in it.

I want to do this, in case I want to make use of the formula in the future.

When I tried the "Visibility" properties of the textbox, that essentially "removed" the cell from view.  But, that's not what I want.  Again, I want the cell to be there--only blank and still containing the formula "behind the scenes", in case I want to activate the formula in the future.

How do I do this?
