# Formula or condition to eliminate the number "0"

Options
✭✭✭

Hi i am trying to build a formula in Smartsheet that make count from a cell and including other items from other. The question is how to eliminate the number zero if the count is zero?

My formula it is working perfectly fine with the count but I cannot eliminate the zero.

=COUNTIFS({Client Sector}, "Commercial", {Buckets2}, [Client Sector]@row, {Status}, OR(@cell = "Submitted", @cell = "In Review", @cell = "Approved-In Progress", @cell = "Closed", @cell = "Approved-Not Started", @cell = "Implementation Started"))

I know that I have to add an IF to the beginning, but I am mentally blocked now!

I hope you're well and safe!

Try something like this.

=IF(COUNTIFS({Client Sector}, "Commercial", {Buckets2}, [Client Sector]@row, {Status}, OR(@cell = "Submitted", @cell = "In Review", @cell = "Approved-In Progress", @cell = "Closed", @cell = "Approved-Not Started", @cell = "Implementation Started")) = 0, "", COUNTIFS({Client Sector}, "Commercial", {Buckets2}, [Client Sector]@row, {Status}, OR(@cell = "Submitted", @cell = "In Review", @cell = "Approved-In Progress", @cell = "Closed", @cell = "Approved-Not Started", @cell = "Implementation Started")))

Did that work/help?

I hope that helps!

Be safe, and have a fantastic weekend!
