Hi.
A bit of help please..... :)

I have cell I3 which is an Autosum of cells B3 to H3. Though nothing is populated in B3-H3 currently, I3 still shows 0.00.
However I would like I3 to show nothing until B3-H3 is populated.

Any views please?
thanks

=IF(COUNT(B3:H3)=0,"",SUM(B3:H3))
or just format cell I3 as "0.00_);(0.00);" (no quotes

If B3 has 3 and C3 has -3, you'd show nothing in I3 with your formula, where I think the user would want to see the 0.00
