Hi Experts,

I have a pivot table that has balances in it.  The source data has some balances that have #N/A values due to a VLOOKUP.

WIthout modifying the source data, how would I go about modifying the total displayed in the Pivot Table so that it sums everything in a column except for the #N/A values?

Thanks,
rav

Modifyv your vlookup so that it returns 0 instead of #n/a:

=if(isna(vlookup(...)),0,vlookup(...))
0

Create a calculated field in your Pivot Table that checks for #N/A and returns an alternate result.

For example, if the field name in question is "Sales" then create a calculated field called "Sales Value" with the formula:
=if(isna(Sales),0,Sales)

Instead of zero ("0") as the return value above, you should also be able to return "N/A" (text) and still have the values calculated properly in the pivot table.
