MS Excel Issue

In cell A2 I have it set up as Name.  I would like cell E2 to reflect the same entry automatically (I put in cell E2 =A2).  =A2 works but when cell A2 is blank there is a '0' in E2.  Can anyone assist in correcting this as I would like cell E2 to be blank until cell A2 is filled with data.  Attached is the example.

Thank you in advance.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
