I'm creating a heatmap using Excel's conditional formatting. I don't want the cell's values to show against the color background. Is there a way to make the font's formatting transparent, similar to what is found in the cell's fill formatting?
Since it's a heat map, I can't use a single color (e.g. white) and I'd prefer to not have to individually format each cell's font property to the appropriate color.
EDIT: To help clarify, the heat map is colored using Conditional Formating>Color Scale>Red-White-Blue (where white was modified to a light gray), so the cell fill value is not directly set, rather it is a calculated value on a color gradient.
