I posted this question yesterday and thought it was answered correctly. In some cases, there are still zeroes being displayed.

I need to update =IFERROR(('Projects'!K44),"") to return a blank if there is a value of Zero in the sheet it is linked to. I have tried the following with no luck:

1. Turned off zeros in excel options
2. =IFERROR(IF('Projects'!M10=0,""),"") RETURNS FALSE
3. =IFERROR(1/(1/(Projects!M10)),"") Wipes out any data that was in the field, returns no information.

This will take care of 0 entered as text

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

Rgonzo1971...

I tried your formula and it did not remove the zeroes....FYI, these are referencing text.  The other cells where I am referencing number values, I have no problems.

Ssaqibhy...

I tried your formula and it completely wiped out all of the text. Most of the information I am referencing is text. No issues with referencing numbers....

Ok lets see how this one behaves

=IFERROR(IF(SUM(--(Projects!M10={0,"0"})),"",Projects!M10),"")

I imagine this will work for text or numbers

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