Suppressing errors

Is there anyway to turn off errors like #Value! or #DIV/O in a
spreadsheet?  I have a formula that works when there is data in a cell
that is referenced but when the cell is empty I get the #DIV/O error.
I'd like to suppress the error without using the =IF function.  Just
thought maybe there might be some kind of setting that would disable
these types of error messages when I print the spreadsheet.

One trick I like to use that does not require formulas is 
to make the font of my entire worksheet white, and then 
custom format the entire sheet as:


This will disguise any error values.
