Is there a way to avoid a zeroes problem in the following scenario?

I have some charts that include monthly (Jan Feb...Dec) data, & I also have some charts that are "year to date". The ytd charts are created by the feed from the monthly data as follows: Jan ytd= Jan. Feb ytd= Feb+Jan ytd... Dec ytd = Dec+Nov ytd.

I would like my year to date chart to be preconfigured so that both the monthly chart and the ytd chart are simply awaiting the new monthly data. To do this, I must drag my YTD formula for the full year in advance, but this then creates "calculated zero's in those months which trashes the appearance of my chart.

Thanks
