Do you mean?

=IF(A1>0,"x","")

this will return an x if A1 has a value greater than 0, else it will return a blank, including when A1 is blank.

andrew_man, if A1 is blank, then how can A1 be greater than 0?

probably Rgonzo interpreted it most correctly.  I didn't catch the OP might want the word "in" if A1 was blank.

=IF(A1="","out",IF(A1>0,"in",""))

if not working try:

=IF(ISBLANK(A1),"out",IF(A1>0,"in",""))

Then is it blank or is there a space?

Is this working?

=IF(A1<>" ","in","out")

or:

=IF(TRIM(A1)<>"","in","out")
