    When plotting the logarithmic axis, if one of the data points on the Y-axis is 0, the log scale is not plotted.
    say: 9M, 11.3M, 0 .. and try shifting to log scale (of base 10), it doesn't work.

    Are there any workarounds for this?

    Hi Roaa,

    Negative or zero values cannot be plotted correctly on charts with logarithmic axis -- only positive values can be interpreted on a logarithmic scale. You can find more information here and you can also check that MS Excel behaves in the same way in this scenario.
