Leave Cell Blank in Excel

I would like to have an "if" formula that gives me a calculation if numbers in the cells meet a criteria (e.g. sum to greater than 0) and leaves the cell blank if they do not.

Here is an example:
if(A1+A2>0, A1+A2, {formula to leave cell blank})

What would be the syntax I could use to leave a cell blank (meaning not a 0, but actually leave it without a value)?

The syntax that you can use is:

IF(SUM(A1+A2)>0,SUM(A1+A2),"")
