    How can I hide Zero Data Labels when it is percentage (for example 0,00%, I do not want that label to be shown)?

    Hi
    Thank you for sharing the solution above. It was really great help. However, after hiding zero values, I am having difficulties with hiding their labels. Can you please give a solution for that problem, too? Thank in advance for your help.

    Great solution! Can this be done retaining decimal points on the numbers that do appear?

      Kelcey, use:
      #,##"";-#,##"";

      When using the second semicolon, you define what happens in case of zero. So, if you don't define anything, the value stays blank.

        I use

        [b]0.0;;; [/b]

        and it also does the trick, in terms of retaining decimal places. You'd just adjust to the # of sig figs you want to keep. You have to assign the custom value to each data label series, but it keeps that format each time you refresh the data.

    [b]Great![/b] Somehow It does not wonder me that this option is still not included in MS Office...for expl. MS Outlook after 10 years of auto recognize input language, still cant recognize it and just picks the language set on Keyboard... That is why I am thankful for people like you, to take your time and money and provide the world solutions! [b]Thank you very much![/b]

    Good idea, however, incase I have many kinds category, how I can apply this type of format for all or have to format manually each data labels
