I have a spreadsheet where one cell is defined by several others with a
subtraction of a number hard coded in there.  The cell displays the negative
number when all other cells are blank.  Is there a way to not display negative
numbers in a cell?  The outcome of the cells will never be negative, once the
proper values are entered, so that won't be a problem.

You want the ABS function:

=ABS(-56) returns 56.

=ABS(12) returns 12.

=ABS(0) returns 0.
