Hiding Zeros

Worksheets are often cluttered with zeros as a result of calculations or information that hasn't been entered. Formulas frequently display a zero when referenced cells are blank. These zeros can make a worksheet confusing.

If you enter the sum formula in row 10 on the Detail sheet in the Sales workbook, the formulas produce unwanted values of zero (see Figure 9.5). This worksheet shows several columns where data has not been entered. Therefore, the cells with the formulas that total the empty columns produce zeros. In this case, you might want to suppress the zeros.
