    pivot table counting blank cells in data table Continued

    Hi all,

    I'm still battling with a problem.

    I have a pivot table which is counting blank cells from the range of data that the pivot table is reading from.

    It appears some of the cells have spaces in them so they appear blank in the data range but the pivot table is counting them.

    Is their a way I can clear these cells with spaces in, so the pivot table reads them as blank?

    Many thanks,

    If the only blanks you expect in those rows or columns are the ones in the "blank" cells, e.g. the others are single words or numbers, you can highlight them and do a Find and Replace to remove blanks.

    substitute commas with semi-colons if your region settings requires
