No Data message

Hey all,

I have converted a 2005/Dundas report to 2008 r2.

All is ok - however i have a matrix. In the matrix data section is a chart. This works fine.

However in the old version if there was no data for the chart - it said "***** No Data *****". However the converted one just has a blank chart.

I have looked at the chart properties for NoDataMessage and its not set to hide, and the text is black!

How can i get my message back???

RE: No Data message

Dan -

If you haven't already, take a look at the properties pane for the matrix or chart. One of the properties will be something like NoRowsMessage or NoDataMessage; you can set your desired text there.
