In C2 try this.....

=IF(A2="","",A2*B2)

You may copy the formula down.

Is this what you are trying to achieve?

@LazyFold

Lets assume that cell A1 also contains a formula in it like =IF(D1="","",D1) OR =IF(ISBLANK(D1),"",D1)  and suppose D1 is blank or empty and as a result A1 would also be blank, in that case what do you expect your formula to return?
