I'm editing a quote sheet for a contractor, and want to minimise any and all typing I do. Here's a partial screenshot.



As you can see, G7=C7*D7. I haven't figured out how to format the cell so that if there is no data, nothing is displayed. "." is close, but " " does not work (nothing is ever displayed). Will I need to continue using "." as a near-fix, or is there another method I should use?

* EDIT: Screenshot too large. Resized for most browsers.

Thanks, I didn't see that earlier. Is there an equivalent for this in MS Office?

I don't know. I haven't used MS Office for years.

Format code # (one single hash character) should work in both applications.
