    Pivot Table Field Settings

    I have a ton of data fields that contain some blank cells, which cause the field to use "Count" as the default. I need it to Sum and resetting each field is taking forever. Is there a way to change the default to "Sum" or change the setting to more than one field at a time. (When I try to change multiple field settings, only the first one is changed.)

    Thanks,
    droach

    Thanks for the reply. I'm a moderate Excel user...

    Is what you posted the code for a macro I can run? I tried to run it in the VB editor but is keeps saying that I need an "object". Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Re: Pivot Table Field Settings

    The sheet is called "Pivot" and the work book is called "Buyer_Recap_DR1
    ". I don't think I named the actual Pivot Table. Is there a default? Where would I find the name?

    Thanks,

    To ascertain the name of the Pivot Table, right click on it and select Table Options the first box should detail the name.
