    Pulling Cell Data to summary sheet - If cell is blank shows as '0' or 00/01/1900

    Hi I have sheets with cell's formatted to be red if blank or a dates past etc using conditional formatting however when I use the following formula on the summary sheet to pull the data from Sheet 1 cell H2 using :
    =INDIRECT($A5 & "!H1")
    Instead of being blank it shows '0' or '00/01/1900'

    I hope this makes sense, can make it the exact same on the summary sheet as on the worksheet.

    I can't upload the sample document to this it just says failed I'm afraid, I have attached screenshots which I hope may help show this.

    You could try something like below.

    If it does not matter if number comes in as string...
    =INDIRECT($A5 & "!H1")&""

    If you need number as number (date as date etc), then...
    =IFERROR((INDIRECT($A5 & "!H1")&"")*1,"")
