I have following 2 columns in excel.

Column A         ColumnB
12345                xyz
23456                ABC
13489
11469

Here rows 1 and 2 have a value in column B but rows 3 and 4 do not have any value in column B (left blank).

I create a pivot with Column A in row lable and want to get a count of Column B.
in this case for rows 1 and 2 count of column B shows 1 which is correct but for rows 3 and 4 count shows as blank. I want it to show 0 instead of blank in the count of Column B for rows 3 and 4. How can this be done?

Thanks,

right click that column in the PT and select PivotTable Options, then in the Layout&Format tab, enter a 0 in the "for empty cells show" field.
