# having a brain cramp...

so, I am trying to make a simple formula from returning a 0 and want it just to be blank.. I am not working the if iserror very well.. formula is =sum('Week 1'!D31:H31) I am tired of looking at the zeros and just want it to be blank if there is answer to the formula is 0.

if(iserror(sum('Week 1'!D31:H31))," ",sum(('Week 1'!D31:H31)) is not returning the correct info.

### Excel Facts

What do {} around a formula in the formula bar mean?
{Formula} means the formula was entered using Ctrl+Shift+Enter signifying an old-style array formula.

A sum returning 0 is not an error, so ISERROR will always return false. Instead, test for if SUM is actually 0:
=IF(SUM('Week 1'!D31:H31)=0,"",SUM('Week 1'!D31:H31))

Or slightly shorter:
=IF(SUM('Week 1'!D31:H31),"",SUM('Week 1'!D31:H31))

Try

=if(sum('Week 1'!D31:H31)=0," ",sum('Week 1'!D31:H31))

Thank you! I knew I was making a mistake somewhere!!

Excel contains over 450 functions, with more added every year. That’s a huge number, so where should you start? Right here with this bundle.
