Default formula for 'If a cell is empty then insert numeric Zero'

Formulas can only return values to their calling cells - they can't
insert values in other cells.

Perhaps if you gave more details, it would help to know what to suggest
instead.

Perhaps you meant to do something like this
In B2, copied down: =IF(A2="",0,A2)
which inserts zeros where col A is empty
otherwise replicate col A's values

In what way would that give a different result from =A2 ?

It gives the OP an opportunity to see how to frame up a typical IF
