OK....maybe an easy one. I can't get it to work the way I want to.

I need to update the following formula: =IFERROR(('Projects'!M10),"")

In a workbook, I am referencing a different sheet that has all of the formulas and links in to to another sheet.

I need the formula to return a blank if there is a "0" (zero) and or an error in the field. What's happening now, is its showing a zero in the field and it just needs to be blank.

If you don't ever want to see zero's you can turn off zeros in excel options.
in excel 2013
file:options:advanced: uncheck show a zero in cells that have a zero value

Try this version

=IFERROR(IF('Projects'!M10=0,""),"")
