Leaving an empty cell empty

Using an "IF" formula, I need to leave empty the empty cells (I mean, cells
containing nothing). I tried many ways, f.e., putting a "" if the formula
finds and empty cell, but Excel (2003) puts something all the times.
Thanks to all.

Look at this formula:
=IF(\$A14=0,"",\$A14*G14)

See the two commas in the middle, surrounding the double quotation marks? Do
you have something like that in your formula?

Thank you, but my problem is a little more complex: I have a column with

all
the cells containing only "1" or "0" or being empty. I need to reverse

the
"1"'s into "0"'s, and vice versa, and to leave the empty cells as they

are.
I'm not able to find how to do it.

Except for the problem with empty cells, does your formula work otherwise?
If yes, please post the formula here.
