SSRS empty value

I have ssrs chart report (Sylinder). I want it to show null value as zero.

I followed the link the following link to make it show. I followed "To specify empty points on a chart
", steps 1 - 6 are fine. But at step 7, I did not see EmptyPointValue property in CustomAttributes node. There's no EmptyPointValue property  in CustomAttributes node. Only properties like Drawing Style, MaxPixePointWidth, PixePointDepth, PointWidth, etc. are shown in CustomAttributes node.

Why EmptyPointValue property is not in my CustomAttributes node?

Here's another link with same content I referenced. I appreciate any help.

My personal preference would be to code for this in the SP that is the data source for your report, with an --> ISNULL(some_column, 0) as some_column.

But if that's not an option, you can pull this off in SSRS by clicking on the textbox, then right-click:Expression, then entering something like -->  =IIF(IsNothing(Fields!some_column) .Value, 0 some_column)

I did it (ISNULL(somevalue, 0)) at the store procedure level, and also did =IIF(IsNothing(Fields!some_column) .Value, 0 some_column)  at report level. But it is still not working. I checked SP it returns 0, but the chart does not display.

Thanks for the post. I found the problem. It is because store procedure. No row at all for empty value. I added a row for the empty value record. Now 0 values show.
