    You can hide errors in a PivotTable display:

    Hide error values in a PivotTable report
    1.Click the report.
    2.On the PivotTable toolbar, click PivotTable, and then click Table Options.
    3.Do one or more of the following:
    Change error display     Select the For error values, show check box under Format options. In the box, type the value that you want to display instead of errors. To display errors as blank cells, delete any characters in the box.

    Change empty cell display     Select the For empty cells, show check box. In the box, type the value that you want to display in empty cells. To display blank cells, delete any characters in the box. To display zeros, clear the check box.
