Excel should STOP the "zero or negative ..in log plot" error msg



Is there anyway to make the "zero and negative numbers cannot be plotted in
log plots..." error message? It is really annoying as it goes off every 5
seconds when a plot has numbers like that. When dealing with big databases
it is not a big deal to have zeros in it and still want it plotted as a log

Even Microsoft cannot override the laws of mathematics - what would you have
Excel use for LOG(zero)?
If you replace 0 by =NA() , which displays as #N/A, you will achieve the
desired effect - the point is ignored in the chart
