    Chart value drops to zero when no value in a cell.

    Colleagues:
    I need your help on an Excel 2013 charting issue. It gives with one hand but, takes with the other.
    I have an Excel 2013 chart which drops values to zero where there is no data displayed in a particular cell, for the current year. One of your solved threads mentions scatter charts to solve the issue. However, this didn't work with my issue.
    To graphically describe this; I've attached a desensitized spreadsheet, to illustrate the issue.
    Many thanks in advance for any help your are able to offer.
    David2020.

    Re: Chart value drops to zero when no value in a cell.

    The issue is the actual data used in the chart if a zero.

    You can modify the formula in the intermediate data table you have to check user inputted value actually exists. If not output #N/A.
    The chart will then be fed with #N/A when no data is present and the line will not drop at the end.

    You can revert to using a line chart as the periods are categories.

    Andy:
    I wasn't sure what you meant by the #N/A. I tried it in my formulas on the 2nd Tab but, I was unable to resolve my issue.
    I couldn't find a way of sending a second updated attachment?
    Many thanks for any help you are able to provide.
    Regards

    the formula would be NA(), which displays the result #N/A when used

    Did you check the attachment I posted which includes the revised formula?

    Andy:
    I didn't check the amended attachment but, I have now. The graph doesn't drop to zero values as you say, with the new formulas in the table C3 to O6.
    However, my 5 check boxes no longer work, to display the year comparisons from the data in Cell range B11 to O16.
    Any ideas where I'm going wrong ? Your continuing help and support is invaluable.
    Regards

    The file you uploaded and I modified had references to your H drive.

    I have modified the controls and chart data to reference the workbook and it now works
