Can an expert out there tell me how to make my pivot table ignore blanks when counting

So, if I have 200 rows and I want to count how many cells in column named Type Colour contain red, 50 are blank cells 150 contain red so the answer should be 150

Because the pivot includes blanks in the count it returns 200

Thanks

Hi,

Have you removed the explicit value of "(blank)" from the PivotTable filter for the appropriate column?

BFN,

Actually, if you include the type column as a row or column field in your pivot, in addition to as data field, you should only get 150 for red.
