# Plot empty cells as: Interpolated

1. ## Plot empty cells as: Interpolated

Hi All

I have two columns (Data 1 and Data 2) that need to be consolidated (Result
Column)

Example:

Data 1 Data 2 Result
1 6 7
2 7 9

5 9 14
6 10 16

9 19 28

I consolidated the data columns using the following formula:
=IF(AND(ISBLANK(B3),ISBLANK(C3)),"",B3+C3)
When a graph is created for the result column the graph return to zero at
each "empty" cell.  Register To Reply

Either use #N/A instead of "" for blank cells or delete the formula
where "blank".

Hi,

for charting use NA()
=IF(AND(ISBLANK(B3),ISBLANK(C3)),NA(),B3+C3)

Cheers
