Reference to Pivot Table returns #REF

I have Excel worksheets connected to Access tables, which create Pivot Tables.  The results are grouped by month, and I have a cover sheet which summarizes the data from multiple worksheets.

There is a summary line for each month, but if the pivot table does not have a line for that month, the it returns #REF, and messes up any calculation using that cell.

For example: if there is no month 10 (October) =GETPIVOTDATA("ChargeAmount",'camper charges'!$A$1,"ChargeDate",10) returns #REF

Is there anyway to use an IF THEN, so it returns 0 if row 10 does not exist?

If you have Excel 2007 or later you can say
=IFERROR(GETPIVOTDATA("ChargeAmount",'camper charges'!$A$1,"ChargeDate",10),0)

Open in new window

If you are on 2003 or before you need to use the longer-winded
=IF(ISERROR(GETPIVOTDATA("ChargeAmount",'camper charges'!$A$1,"ChargeDate",10)),0,GETPIVOTDATA("ChargeAmount",'camper charges'!$A$1,"ChargeDate",10))
