    Pivot table Query- Top 4 items ignoring selected items from the list

    Hello Friends,

    Please see the attached spreadsheet.

    I have a pivot table showing Top 4 customers based on the Sales figures. To get the Top 4 items from the source data is straight forward. But I need to get the Top 4 customers ignoring certain customers from the Source data. That is without deleting the certain customers i dont want to appear on the Top 4, from the source file.

    Is this achievable ? Also how do I remove the blank column ?

    Thanks

    hi there. here is 1 way you can do it. by putting in formulas in your source data not to read amounts when it belongs to customer "EX". and by using Table, you can save some file space, speed up Excel & also not see blanks in the Period. the reason why you saw blanks is because your pivot range reads up to 65000 rows. Period is blank from C24 onwards. you can easily filter it off but using the Table will have the other benefits mentioned.
