format changes when copying from one cell to another
I'm sure this is simple, but it is not clear to me...
I am copying the contents of a group of cells that exist on one worksheet to
another. In Sheet2, I tell cell A1 that it should equal Sheet1's A1 value.
That works fine. But if the cell is blank on Sheet1, it comes up as "0" on
Sheet2. I figured it was probably assuming numeric formatting, but when I
right-click > format cell on both Sheet1 and Sheet2, both show up as
"general", so why would Sheet2 take a blank value and populate it with "0"
I gather than you are putting a formula in one...Paste Special Changes Content
Greetings - I am attempting to copy and link, via Past
Special, a group of rows within the same workbook. When I
do, all the empty cells are populated with zeros.
I am using Windows 200 and Office XP. Thanks in advance,
When you paste special|Links, you end up with a formula like:
If x99 is empty, then excel will show a 0. But you can change your formula to
look like this:
(if x99 is empty, then make the cell look empty, else just show what's in x99.)

I am linking cells from different worksheets in the same workbook, using the
copy/paste/link cell method. How can I get a blank space (as opposed to the
zero I am presently getting), in the destination, if the source cell is
blank. I am linking a input sheet to several forms that must be sent out,
but I don't want a form that will have a number of zeros in it.
If the linked cell looks empty, show empty, else show the value.

Is there a way to number each row in Excel so that when
it prints out the rows all have numbers? I couldn't find
it in Msft online Help but I guess that's no surprise.
1. In page setup>sheet select "row and column headers". Note this will print
the column headsers also.
2. Insert a column to left of your original columns(will become column A)
Enter in A1 =ROW() and drag/copy down the column as far as you wish.
