Fiscal Year line chart with Zero Values and future budget periods

I have a chart that's based on a fiscal year. I have data for the full current year budget by month and the full prior year actual by month. Because of the inclusion of the budget months there is zero value in the current year future months, which show the line as zero (eg in July I would like a dot and in August i would like to see July/Aug line for actuals but want last year and budget July-June. I can solve this if I do columns but would prefer lines. Kind of like an NA() used in an excel set of data for a chart.


Any ideas welcome:

Re: Fiscal Year line chart with Zero Values and future budget periods



From your data source, you seem to have 0's (zeros) for 'actual' in the future fiscal months.

Make sure your 0's are blanks (or nulls) in the future fiscal months and you will get the result you want.

Re: Fiscal Year line chart with Zero Values and future budget periods

Hi @gary_connolly,

Can you please share some sample data to test? It is hard to troubleshooting without any data.

In addition, you can also check your records if you have some convert process to replace null value to zero.
