I am trying to format a production worksheet.  I have the production sheet linked to my working sheet with the followin formula : =IFERROR(('Wells'!O10),"") so that it doesnt return any zeroes.

I am trying to use conditional formatting based on a number that is return by the formula above. The number is a 7 digit accounting number in Column N. Not having much luck using >0 >100, >1000, etc.

I need to return conditional formatting if there is a number greater than zero in N1.

=IFERROR(('Wells'!O10),"") : should be =IFERROR(('Wells'!N1),"")

Change the fomula to this,

=IFERROR(('Wells'!O10),"")

and format the cell so 0s aren't shown.

If that doesn't work it might be worth checking if the account numbers are actually numbers and not numbers stored as text.

The formula for returning values in the N1 cell work like they are supposed to. They either return a blank or a number (accounting code). I am trying to set my conditional formatting up to see if the cell has an accounting code number in it or not.

you may need to use the formula:
=Value(O2)>1000
 - if your data values are actually text.

Example attached with 3 rules specified.

another way to remove zero values is to apply a regular Custom format of
0;-0;
