I know this may be a really simple question, but here goes. I want to insert a $ sign in a range of cells that are blank (""). I know how to do this from a zero value with out the zero displaying, but can not figure out the blank?

Thanks

Highlight your range of cells. Go to "edit" then "replace" leave the "find" line empty and in the replace line insert $, select replace all.

I guess I did not do a good job wording my question. These cells have formulas in them. If the result of a formula is >0, it returns a $00.00, and <0 a red $00.00. I want to display the $ in all cells until data is entered.

Certainly, someone can tackle this simple question? Or is it just not possible to format the cells (with a formula) that are blank with a dollar $?

If we knew your formula, we could probably provide a better answer.

consider

=IF(B2>10,1,"$")

I was thinking there was a feature or command in the Format Cells under the custom category. However, the formula I have in the cell is:
=if('sheet1!D10="",0,'sheet1'!D10)

Thanks for your help!
