I have have 50 pivot tables...1 for each state of the US. The problem I'm having is that some mnths there isnt data for a certain state. When i load the new data for the month and refresh the pivot table the state will disapear from the choices after i refresh. Is there a way to keep the state filtered so i dont have to go back each month and check each state?

So for example in December i had 209 sales in Nevada, so the "Nevada" filter was listed under the state filter set. But in January I had NO sales in Nevada so when i refesh the pivot table obviously the "Nevada" selection is gone.

IS there a way to preserve this other than supplying "fake data for the state each month?
