Stacked bar chart - Only show data labels if value not 0

Posted on 2014-04-04
Last Modified: 2014-04-04

Im building a stacked bar chart where the colums are labeled both with value and series name.

I'm searching for a non-vba solution for excluding the series name from the label is the value is 0.  I've attached the chart for reference.

Any ideas?

Thanks for the answer!

However, this removes the data values - i need to exclude the series name as well so that if the data values is 0 neither the series name or the data value is displayed. I've tried to show it in the attached pic.

Or, alternatively, add two different labels to each data series - onw which contains the value and one which contains the series name

For each serie in your chart you will have to go to Format Data Labels
Label Options: untick Series name
Add Format Code "SOK "0;;"" for the SOK Serie

That did the trick - thanks! Something dynamic would have been stellar, however this works for the purpose!
