I want to create a chart in Google Sheets with cumulative Profit (H) column but without creating the second column (I). Are there any solutions?

1 Answer 1


 SIGN(H2:H)^2); IFERROR(1/0))); 
 {"charttype" \ "line"; 
  "color" \ "red"; 
  "linewidth" \ 3})

 SIGN(H2:H)^2); IFERROR(1/0))); 
 {"charttype" \ "column"; 
  "color" \ "red"})

  • This solution maybe works but it not a chart object. For example I can't see chart's legend or publish this chart. Commented Feb 18, 2019 at 6:40

    @VadimSelyakov this is all you can get without column I

  • This is exactly what I'm looking for, except I need to filter the range by a specific date. I've been using FILTER(Log!$N$2:$N, Log!$B$2:$B=A3), where A3 is the cell containing a date to filter by. I can't find the correct way to alter your solution to include a filtered range. Could you please enlighten me!? Thanks Commented Sep 5, 2020 at 11:30
  • @MustImpress can you share a copy of your sheet?

  • @user0 Thanks for the quick reply! Here's a copy: docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/… The chart is on the "Days" tab. "Log" is just input data. I've managed to reduce the rows using a filter but I can't see how to apply a filter to your clever logic. It's beyond me :) Commented Sep 6, 2020 at 9:50
