In the tool table, enter 0 (zero) for the tool number to label a tool pocket "always empty". The tool changer does not "see" this pocket, and it never tries to install or retrieve a tool from pockets with a ‘0’ designation.

You cannot use a zero to designate the tool in the spindle. The spindle must always have a tool number designation.
