Select your range of cells in column A. Edit / Go to / Special / Blanks.
Type = and then press up arrow. Then hit Shift Enter.
If you are happy with this result, select the range again and Edit / Copy
then Edit / Paste Special / Values to fix the values in place.

Maybe your cell is preformatted as Text.
Try formatting to general then erase your =

I have a line graph/chart and it gets its values using a formula and the values of another column. However this poses a problem because if there is nothing in the targetted column the formula returns 0 cause the line to drop to the bottom, instead of casuing the line to just end until a value is added to the target column. How can I do this?
Change your formula to use NA() if the cell is empty. For example:
To hide the resulting #N/A errors on the worksheet, you can use
conditional formatting. There are instructions here:

if i do not display, i can use the pipe communicating with the child
