Blank field would be displayed in the Project Calculated UDF when Project Code used in formula is not assigned.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Go to Administer, Enterprise Data and Create a Project Code with 2 values.
2. Go to Project UDF and create a new field with data type Integer, UDF type Formula, Summary Calculation None, Display Indicator only, and Formula below:

IF (<project code>="<value 1>") THEN (0) ELSE (1)

Indicator (just one): equals value 0

3. Go to Projects, Standard EPS view and assign a value from the new Project Code in step 1 to some, but not all of the Projects.
4. Add the new Project UDF from step 2 to the selected columns. Observe locks in column where no Code was selected.
5. Go to Classic EPS view and add the new Project UDF from steps 2 to the selected columns. Observe blanks where no Code was selected.
