Pivot tables don't count blanks. In order to count the blanks, you need to use a field that has data in every row. In the attached revised Excel file,

- I put the Category field as the first item in the pivot table row to group the data by Category.
- I put the Data field as the second item in the pivot table row to show the individual Data items.
- I used a count of the Category field in  the Values area to count the items in both Category 1 and 2, including blanks.

Let me know if you have any questions.
