"If (nSeries == 0 || nPoints == 0)"

If is True, can't you fill the chart with 1 series 1 or more points but use CHART_HIDDEN for the value to create an "empty" chart but one that perhaps will not "blow up"?

In vb:

ChartFX1.OpenDataEx COD_VALUES, 1, 1

ChartFX1.ValueEx(0, 0) = CHART_HIDDEN

ChartFX1.CloseData COD_VALUES
