Hi,

I am working on a big chart, some of the series have blank cells (were there is no data available), this is expected and I want those blanks to be uncharted.

However, my chart is returning those blanks as 0s (zeros) and charting them at zero. The cells of the series are made of the following formula:-

=IF(E3=0,"",E3-E$7) ~ which says make the cell blank if Ex is 0, else subtract E7 from Ex

Here is a picture which explains it better:-

When I go to Tools>Options and CHART tab, I have the following settings:-

Active Chart Section:-

Plot empty cells as "Not Plotted"
Plot visible cells only (checked this box)

Please let me know if these are the correct settings and if anyone has any ideas how to fix it.
