How Missing Data Is Handled

By default, the following rules govern how missing data points are handled:

- When a data point is part of a cumulative total (stacked or percent bar, line, area, pie slice), it is interpreted as 0.0.
- When a data point is used with neighboring points to define a line segment or surface (3D connected, 3D surface, 2D line, 2D area), it is interpreted as 0.0.
- Otherwise (2D side-by-side bar, 3D riser, 3D floating, 2D and 3D scatter, stock graphs, spectral map, histogram), the (missing) point will not be plotted.

The FillMissingData and NumMissingDataSegments properties can be used to override these rules and define how missing data points are handled.
