No but you can stop them staying there.

I put a number into a cell click on the next cell and the first cell reverts
to 0. If I format to number with 2 decimal places it will be ok but when I
try to take out decimal places it goes back to zero,
You haven't said what number you are trying to put into the cell, but I
suspect that the number is less than 0.5.
A quick test shows that if you set the cell to no decimal places then enter
a number less than 0.5 it is displayed 'rounded down' so it will show as
zero, if it's 0.5 or above it displays as 1.
If you need to put numbers less than 0.5 into youe c...is there a way to program my Excel file to do a loop?
If I want B10 to B17 all follow the change of the same number(copy cell),
let's say I put it in A1,

A3(copy cell), and C12 follows the change of A4(copy cell),
then I have 4 variables in my calculations: A1, A2, A3, A4.
I want to loop each of the variables in a different set,
then I hope the whole worksheet will be able to refresh following the change

I have a formula in cell H21, for example, reads like this:
is there a way to adjust the formula so that an empty cell in G21 doesn't

Just to give a similar example, this formula =SUMIF(A1:A9,"<>0") adjusts for
any and all empty cells in A2 to A9. It no longer matters if any of the
cells are empty, the formula correctly gives the correct addition of A1
plust a sum of everything between A2 to A10 without any #VALUE! results.

12 month line chart, with some values being 0.
I am using an if statement that turns any 0 values to #N/A so they do
not show on the graph (which is what I want).
My problem arises when the 0 values fall in the middle of my data.
So for example:
1) data for all months (Jan-Dec), the line shows across all 12
2) I have data for only 6 months (Jul-Dec), the line starts in Jul and
ends in Dec (perfect);
3) When I have data from Jan-Mar, and Oct-Dec, the line connects
between Mar and Oct. I want 2 distinct lines with no line where there
is no data (#N/A).
