hello all, so i have a formula in cell M12 that shows the sum of =E12-L1*2+1.625 , my problem is when E12 is blank M12 shows a negative number, i would like if E12 is blank for M12 to show nothing and if i input a number into E12 for it to show the sum of the equation IN M12, I think this can be done with a IF THEN STATMENT?

thanks for the help
