Hi,

Is possible with Numeric Format Strings not show a value field if zero. For ex. i have some values like "0,00" in a report and i need to supress, print blank.

best regards

No, you need to implement that yourself by checking the value against zero and replacing with blank.

HI,

pls try in excel

yourRange.NumberFormat  = "0.00;-0,00;";

if you want to use string format then use

double posValue = 1234;
double negValue = -1234;
double zeroValue = 0;

string fmt2 = "##;(##)";
string fmt3 = "##;(##);**Zero**";

Console.WriteLine(posValue.ToString(fmt2));  
Console.WriteLine(String.Format("{0:" + fmt2 + "}", posValue));    
// Displays 1234

Console.WriteLine(negValue.ToString(fmt2));  
Console.WriteLine(String.Format("{0:" + fmt2 + "}", negValue));    
// Displays (1234)

Console.WriteLine(zeroValue.ToString(fmt3)); 
Console.WriteLine(String.Format("{0:" + fmt3 + "}", zeroValue));
// Displays **Zero**

Open in new window

Hi,

you can use following:

d = 0.0;
MessageBox.Show(d.ToString("#.##")

It will show blank space

d = 1.20;
            MessageBox.Show(d.ToString("#.##"));
It will show 1.2

Thanks
