Hide Data in Running Total Pivot

[FONT=&quot]Hi there,[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]I have monthly profit data for 2014. I'm trying to add cumulative profit by monthly cohort in a pivot table. The "Show Value As > Running Total In" function almost works perfect, except I want to leave the cell blank if there is no data to add to the running total. The reason is because I don't want to show a flat line in a line chart if there is no data. Please see attached images. I've also thought about creating a "Cumulative Profit" column with a formula that takes the 1st purchase month (G1), and cohort month (K1) and returns the cumulative profit from (C1) or something. I'm so suck.[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Pivit 1 - No calculation[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Pivot 2 - Cumulative profit[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Pivot 2 chart[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]I've spend 12+ hours trying to figure this out so any help would really be appreciated. Thanks.[/FONT]
