Summary

Partial line data equates to zero in curve fitted charts

Product

Operating system version

XP

Description of the issue

If you have two sets of delimited data for a line graph and one has more data points than the other the behavior differs when you change the chart style between Poly-Line and Curve Fitting.

The former will draw a partial line for a data set that has fewer data points.  The later will interpret the missing data points as being zeroes.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Create curve fitting line chart with delimited data.  Have one data set have fewer data points than the other.

Expected result

Partial line for the partial data set.

Actual result

A nasty curve down to zero.

Workaround

Use Poly-Line style.
