is there any way to use this formula [<30,0,1)) for a group of cells in Sheet1!(A14:I100)] and if result == 0 insert blank or add [=IF(O16=0,"",] somehow so all 0 results just show a blank result. I'm just not sure how to add this to my formula

so if Cell a176= 07:48:16 and formula [<30,0,1)) for a group of cells in Sheet1!(A14:I100)] changes it to 468, all is good - however if Cell a176= 00:00:16, the result is "0" - I would like the result to be "" blank "" instead of "0".

any ideas??

If you just want 0's to display as blank:

On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the View tab.
Do one of the following:
    To display zero (0) values in cells, select the Zero values check box.
    To display zero values as blank cells, clear the check box.

so no way just to add it to the calculation? some 0's are needed - others need to be blank – Tom Aug 30 '12 at 19:21
@Tom =if(yourformula=0,"",yourformula) – user142485 Aug 30 '12 at 19:35
