I'm linking from one spreadsheet to another (see below):

Cell M6 on Source.xls is copied to cell B4 on Location.xls

The problem is, if the referenced cell (M6 on Source.xls) is blank then it shows up as zero in cell B4 on Location.xls. Instead of showing as zero is there a way to have cell B4 shown as blank on Location.xls?

Thanks
 

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.

Tools, Options, View Tab. Uncheck the Zero values option.

Or, as a formula

if(source.xls!m6="","",source.xls!m6)
