Pivot Table - Hide Calculated Zero Fields

Hello Experts!

I have a pivot table query which contains calculated total fields.  These calculated fields default to zero if the calculation cannot be performed (due to division by zero, etc).

Currently, all fields (row fields) are visible - even those with a calculated value of zero.  However, I would like to hide these.

Is there a setting I'm missing?  Should I change my formula to default to null?  Ideas?

You want to put a formula in your query that states if zero is the outcome replace the zero with null.
