Default How do I ignore Graphs zero values.

Really important because it is NOT obvious through the prior instructions in
this change: you have to set the conditional formatting for a single cell as
decribed and then copy the format with the paintbrush to all the other cells.
You can NOT select a range of cells and set the formula based conditional
formatting for them all at the same time.

I have tried doing a conditional format on the #N/A but it does not seem
work. What do you need to specifically put in the conditional format. I
tried #N/A, NA(), N/A ?

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

select the chart.
goto tools options and check plot empty cells as any of the three
given there.

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

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

Sorry for rehashing a really old topic, but I've got that conditional formatting set on the ranges of cells I'm graphing, but the graphs still show the empty categories:

Is there any way to make those automatically not show if their value is 0?
