Default Modifying legend on graph on report

I have a bar graph which displays workers by widgets by months.

X axis = Months
Y axis = quantity of widgets
Bars = worker names

The report *must display every month* regardless of whether anyone
produced any widgets so my data looks like this after an outer join
between a table containing all the months is linked to the widgets

MonthSt WorkerName #Widgets

Creating the graph for the report is Ok, but where the workername is
null, it displays "" with its own coloured box on the legend even
tho' there is no data for it and the bar is not shown on the graph.

Can I remove it?

I could force some kind of iif(isnull(workername), "something
meaningful but what??",workername)
but no sure what the Something Meaningful would be. If I put "no
widgets produced" might look a bit odd on the legend.

Any suggestions?
