Yes, it is certainly possible (and normal) but you need to supply more information. What is displayed when you enter 0 in the cell (without the apostrophe) and what is the cell formatting applied to that cell? – Mike Fitzpatrick Jan 3 '12 at 5:38

Check this setting in Excel (make sure it's on to display 0's)

enter image description here

Also check the Cell's Number Format - its made up of up to 4 parts, the third is for Zero values. If the third field is blank 0's won't be displayed
