Working thanks - as you said, already tried the first suggestion but as it

was a formulae, it still showed.

Hi,

That will not work is the cells actually contain zero because by

definition containing zero is NOT empty.

The zeros will either need to be removed from the cells or replaced with

NA().

=IF(SUM(myrange)=0,NA(),SUM(myrange))

Use conditional formating to hide the #N/A

Cheers

...

I have a variety of tables in excel that sum approx 20 sheets but

occasionally these have a zero value.

The graphs link off these tables and show drops to zero on these

occurences.

How do I get the graph to ignore the zero values.

The source table formula is too long to put an if arguement in.
