Good Afternoon,

Have a monthly graph that I would like for the future months (MAR-DEC 2011) not to reflect "0" on the graph but just to show the months that have data (jan-feb).  Not sure if there is a formula that would do this instead of what I have curretnly (SUM) in column B11:B22.  I have attached an example.

Change the SUM formula to something like this:

=IF(SUM(C3:C9)=0,NA(),SUM(C3:C9))

This will display #N/A instead of 0's and will not plot on your chart.
