Question
Hi Bob,
Good Day!!!
I am in the process of creating a reporting template for a team in excel. In which I wish to include certain rules to the cells, they are:
1. The default value should appear as zero in each cell.
2. The users are allowed only to key in the numbers which are greater than or equal to zero.
3. If the user delete content in the cell the cell should automatically pick zero as a default value.

Can you please guide me with your expert advise

I believe you will have to do what you want with Visual Basic coding.  I am not a VBA expert since I seldom have the need for it in my everyday work.  I suggest you reask the question of another allexperts person.  I'm sure you can find someone who can give you a good answer.

Sorry I could not be of more help.
