I have a state layer with counties outlined I've joined an .XLSX file on County_Name with populations. Finally figured out how to do a graduated symbology but when I run it I get the highest symbols and the rest of the display is blank; I lose the outlines of all but the displayed symbols. Does what I want in ArcGIS 10.6 and trying to replicate in QGIS 3.8.1. It's probably something simple that I've just overlooked. Not a GIS professional, just a dabbler.

Ok, my fault. Thought I'd triple checked my data; wrong... County_Names in joined .XLSX file had extra space at end of each name. No successful join. Fixed it and now it works! Thanks for looking and sorry to bother you.
