ProfessorJimJam is correct; those are the alphanumeric character "0", not zero.

You have to change your formulas on the combined sheet (insert and then copy formulas down):
O2: =IF(OR(TRIM(N2)="undetermined",N2<=0),1,0)
Q2: =IF(OR(TRIM(P2)="undetermine",P2<=50),1,0)
Z2: =IF(OR(TRIM(Y2)="undetermined",Y2>=40),1,0)
