I'm trying to set up my formula so that if there is no criteria match, rather than returning 0 it leaves the cell blank.

(I recommend skipping the below text and just opening the attached spreadsheet, instructions/what I'm looking for and trying to achieve and well laid out requirements and examples are in the spreadsheet and much more thoroughly explained then I can do below)
I'm setting up a table that grabs data from columns in a raw data spreadsheet.
For the purpose of the table I'm making, the formula needs to match up both the House, and the year/month from the raw data sheet, then if the two match and are side by side, return the value to the right either in the Plan Field or the actuals field depending on which field in the table the formula is in. If there is no entry or matching criteria for both the house and Month then it should leave the cell blank, not show a 0
So I have a SUMIFS formula that I'm trying to set up so that if there is no criteria match it leaves the cell blank.
So =SUMIFS(sum range, criteria& range, criteria&range), if no matching criteria can be found, leave cell blank, else if matching criteria found then return value from the sumrange.
This is the exact formula I am using:
=SUMIFS(INDEX('Raw Data'!$1:$1048576, 0, MATCH(Table!$B9, 'Raw Data'!$1:$1, 0)), INDEX('Raw Data'!$1:$1048576, 0, MATCH(Table!$A$8, 'Raw Data'!$1:$1, 0)), Table!$A$9, INDEX('Raw Data'!$1:$1048576, 0, MATCH(Table!$B$8, 'Raw Data'!$1:$1, 0)), TEXT(Table!C$8, "yyyymm"))
Yeah kind of hard to follow, so attached is a very detailed and well laid out spreadsheet showing the example of what the formula is, how it's working/what it's returning and an example of what i want it to return/look like, so please check out the spreadsheet, it explains it a million times better.
Essentially though i want the formula set up so that if there is no criteria match, rather than returning 0 it leaves the cell blank.
