      I added the below line of code to get the totals row in my spread and it works fine. In the columns that are text, it shows a zero. I want to show blank cell in the place of a zero. I tried to wrap a IF function around the sum but was not successful. How can I achieve this ?

    fpspread1.ActiveSheet.Rows(fpspread1.ActiveSheet.Rows.Count - 1).Formula = "SUM(A1:A" & fpspread1.ActiveSheet.Rows.Count - 1 & ")"

    Hello Harish,

    You should be able to display a blank space instead of a zero in a Cell where the formula is not applied.You may use the code as below,

           FpSpread1.ActiveSheet.RowCount = 10

           FpSpread1.Sheets(0).Rows(9).Formula = "IF(SUM(A1:A9)=0, """", SUM(A1:A9))"


    I hope it helps you.

    Great.That worked for string columns. What do you do about dateTime columns ? It shows a date in the totals row. How do I get rid of that ?

    You can check the cell type of column (on which you are applying SUM formula) and if it is of DateTimeCell type, you can set it to Noting, as follows:

    If TypeOf FpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Columns(0).CellType Is FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellType.DateTimeCellType Then
                FpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Cells(7, 0).Formula = Nothing
    End If
