Custom Number Formats?

Rather than showing a 0 in a cell, I'd like it be be blank or use the " - " symbol. In excel I use custom number formats to accomplish this.

First, I tried conditional formatting to a white (invisible) font, but it doesn't look like i can limit the rule to certain cells (only an entire row or column) so that won't work if there is shading (the white makes the 0 visible).

Then I tried using a formula but when a text cell shows up in a range, the formulas either break (error message) or the total in the header row changes to general text (no commas or decimals).

Any direction would be appreciated
