If we don't use the GetDataCell formula in the report, we could use the GetDataCell formula in the account formula.
WARNING: I would never recommend adding zero to static account formula. You will populate many cells of data with zeros!
DYNAMIC CALC: But you could add it to a dynamic calculation account. And this solution might make sense for a short list of accounts. But the longer the list of accounts, the higher the 'cost' of this answer. Both in terms of report speed and chart of accounts volume.
I wouldn't create new account to accomodate this as this would require a lot of maintenance. From what I am understanding is that there is currently no supression setting for this.
Thanks for the insight.
