hide (blank) in pivot table

Dear All,

I created a pivot table where the empty cells are represented by (blanks).
By clicking on table options and selecting 'for empty cells show' I tried to
get rid of this (blank) description in my cells. However it will not go away.
Has anyone a suggestion for this problem?
Thanks a lot in advance.

Kind regards,
Nynke

How do I hide rows containing zeroes or blanks in pivot tables?


I have a pivot table with the columns:

Vendor

Item

Description

Number of Stores with Item out of Stock

Quantity Required

Extended Cost

Model Stock

Order At

For each vendor I want to show the total order cost, however I do not
want subtotals on any of the other columns.

That is I need to know that I have to place an order for $1000 to a
vendor but it doesn't make sense to say 15 hammers plus 30 drills
equals 45.

I found the following macro which was very helpful however I want to
know if there is a way to be selective about which data fields should
be subtotaled and which should not

Sub NoSubtotals()
'turns off subtotals in pivot table
'.PivotFields could be changed to
'.RowFields or .ColumnFields
Dim pt As PivotTable
Dim pf As PivotField
On Error Resume Next
For Each pt In ActiveSheet.PivotTables
For Each pf In pt.PivotFields
'First, set index 1 (Automatic) to True,
'so all other values are set to False
pf.Subtotals(1) = True
pf.Subtotals(1) = False
Next pf
Next pt
End Sub

Sincerely

Is there a way to hide the "(BLANK)" or format the "(BLANK)" in a pivot table so it won't be displayed?

I was wondering if anybody can help me with this:

Is it possible to hide cells that has zero value or that are blank (in PIVOT)? Like to show only cells that has value more then 0 and are not blank?

Thank you!

Hello,

Is there a way I can filter only the ("(Blank)") item in a pivot table via a macro (excel 2003)?

I'm trying to automate a report and need to automatically select the blank cell selection for the macro to run.

Thanks and Regards,

Jeremie.

I've got a database view that holds data for over a year, i use a - 2 day rule to show net data, for example
todays date is the 31th 5 2007 if i show data up untill today it will be gross data, so i use the -2day rile to show the net data,
the way i do this is in a pivot table i hide the last 2 date.

I have a DTS package the refreshed the Pivot table but i'd like also to have a macro or maybe vba script to ide the
2 last days this will have to happen every day so for to day it will hide the 30th and 29 tomorrow it will show
the 29th and hide the 30 & 31th. I still need to have the data for the 30th & 31 in the drilldown as some people work with
the gross data so i can't just make the change inthe database i wish it was that easy. At the moment i go in to the
pivot table and Highligh the last 2 days. i'd like a way of doing this automically it would be great if you could help me out.

Is it possible to replace blanks with zeroes in a pivot table?

Hi,

I want to be able to very quickly set pivot tables to hide all the rows that are missing data in ANY of the 1 to several data fields.

I'm thinking the best way to do this is to use vba to traverse through all the rows of the pivot table, and hide (i.e., uncheck the "show" box) all of the rows that are missing data in any of the fields.

Can anyone help me out with how to do this?

Thanks!

Tai

p.s.
I want to use this on pivots that are based on many different combinations of dozens of columns and thousands of rows, so I really don't want to add additional columns into the data source and then use them as a dummy variables in the page fields of the pivots.

I have a medium sized table (120 x 100) with survey data. The columns represent the different survey questions and the rows are the respondents (1 through 120). Each cell has either a 1 or it is blank (1 = yes and blank = no). I am trying to analyze the data with a pivot table but the blanks are driving me crazy (I only care about the 1's). Is there any way of being able to ignore the blanks in the pivot table (ie have them not show up at all)?

Hello Friends, Best wishes.

I am facing a small problem. That is when referring the Pivot Table cells in other area, I am unable to avoid (blank) - (i.e. in source data there is a formula which returns no value).

Can any one please help me in this regard.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I need to make sure that all fields in the pivot table are visible.

this doesn't work
With PTsales.PivotFields("Entity - Reporting")
.PivotItems("(blank)").Visible = True
End With

and this doesn't either
For Each PivItem In PTsales.PivotFields("Entity - Reporting").PivotItems
On Error Resume Next
PivItem.Visible = True
Err.Clear
On Error GoTo 0
Next

any input is greatly appreciated

Cheers,
Roland

I have a pivot table where one of the data elements is tied to the number of participants in a survey. If this number is less than 4, I'd like to hide the data in the pivot table (to protect anonymity).

I could write code to simply hide the rows or columns based on this condition. However, the columns would hide the pivot table "page" selection drop down, and therefore not allow user to return from the selection with > 4. Hiding the rows would work, except that I'd have to protect the sheet to prevent them from simply being unhidden, and protecting the sheet disables the pivot table.

Any suggestions?

thanks!

In data field, when I make right-click on, it shows details form the result.

I would like to hide the fnction "show details" when right-click on data
field, how could I do this?

Please pay your attention that, I've already check out "Enable show detail"
in Pivot Table OptionsData tab. But, this makes Pivot Table not show detail
when right0click on data field. It still permit other users can enable this
function again.

So I'd like to protect this function by hiding this function. I don't know
how to do this. Please help me with this.

Thanks & regards,

Hi,

I am working in a Pivot table. I have data analysed by each month of years
2000-2005. I hide monthes 1-12 for years 2000 - 2003 so that only the total
of the year shows. But in year 2004 I only want to hide monthes 1-10, that is
i want months 11 and 12 to show. If I hilight a month and click on "hide
detail" it hides all 12 months (and for all years). why is this happenng.

I know i could just select the hole columns (outside the pivot table) and
hide them but isn't there a more elegant way?

Please note that whicherer the display options i do want all data to be
calculated in the final outcome.

Thank you.

How can I count blank cells in a pivot table?
I have a table which socres physical activity of patients and have made a
pivot table based on that.
Pivot table counts very well the cells which has values, but it igonores the
cells where there are no values. So how can I ask pivot table to consider
blank cells as well?

Is there a way to make empty cells in a pivot table show nothing rather than the word (Blank)?

thank you for your help!

This is quite a difficult one to explain, but here goes.

I currently have a ODBC style worksheet set up which is a list of the
backups performed on our servers, the dates and the size of the backup. If
the backup fails then no data is produced/pulled through.

From this I have a pivot table which lists the dates in the row fields, the
server name in the column fields and the size of the backup in the data
field. From this pivot table I have charts set up showing the results
graphically.

The problem I am having is that when a buckup fails and doesn't bright
through any data the relevent area on the pivot table is blank and this is
then replicated on the graph, leaving gaps along the line.

Is it possible that when there is a blank in the pivot it reports the last
days results?

regards

Here's my question:

I am trying to use Pivot Tables for my data set, the only trouble is my data set is as follows:

Name Group
A bbbc
cdde
fggg

B asde
ccdd
fffff

I have over 10,000 lines and wanted to know if I have to individually click the name and drag it down or is there a macro or formula to take the previous cell and fill down? This is the end result I would want to get all the previous cells to A to be filled in? Thank you very much for the help.
Name Group
A bbbc
A cdde
A fggg

I am using XL 2002, I am working in a faily simple pivot table that
identifies sales for customers by month [sum of month is in the data
field]. What I want is simply the sum of the month, as opposed to
seeing each months data listed, followed by the sum. This way the
report wont be 500 pages as well!

Any help is appreciated!

Hi Everyone.

Sorry if that has been solved before, I just found nothing so far.
I have faced a problem working in Pivot Table.
I have set ROW LABLES to be months and years, and then in the SUM VALUES I have stated that I want Difference in % of a previous month.
I had only 2 years of data: 2010 and 2011. In 2010 (as it should), first field (Junuary 2010) was blank, as Excel had nothing to compare the data to. But then in January 2011 field came up to be blank as well, meaning Excel does not recongnize 12.2010 to be previous month of 01.2011.

Has anyone had similar problem before?

Many Thanks

Hi there!!! I was wondering if it's possible to use custom vba functions in pivot tables calculated fields formulas, I don't know if I was clear enough because English is not my first language, but what I need is to use a custom function I created in vba in a pivot table calculated field formula.

Thanks in advance
