I have a report that has several pie charts used to view different values.  Ocassionaally one or more of the charts will disappear.  I have discovered that this happens when there is no data to display.  That is, for example, a chart showing income for different departments in a store.  If all the departments show zero income, the chart will be "invisible".

I understand the reason and logic, but it makes my reports look funny when there's the occasional hole.

So, the question is, how do I put a place holder of some sort (probably text that says "No Data Available") that will show up if there is no data?
