    How to disable excel for taking empty cell in Excel chart

    I am trying to create several charts from my excel data. Several of the chart's reference cell (established range) contains formulas. When the cell's formula returns a null value, chart display's as zero. How do I setup chart to display null as nothing versus zero.

    Re: How to disable excel for taking empty cell in Excel chart

    The workaround for charting calculated cells when you may have missing data is to use an If formula that selects NA() if there is missing data. Something like = If( d2 = "", NA(), b2*d2). You'll need to replace your actual cell references and formula. This formula will place a #N/A in those cells that can not be calculated because of your missing data. Excel recognizes #N/A cells in charting and ignores them.

    Try: Go to menu Tools>Options>Active Chart, Plot Empty Cells as. This only works for blank cells, not if a formula returns a zero-length string.
