Re: need to replace the graph with the textobject

you can hide the chart conditionally i.e. show only if condition=true and show the text object if condition=false .

You can also give a message in error messages button in your chart properties General tab. Like below:

This way you do not need any Text object to hide show.

Agreed either approach will work. i prefer the hiding as i control the formats better.

Definitely. However, i was just trying to use native chart properties that might help in this scenario rather than writing conditional statements in both the objects.
