Hello,  

I've created an Excel pivot table by automation from access.  When I open the created workbook, all the data apppears to be there, including any that contain blanks.  When I apply a filter to those fields, blanks appear as a selection option.  However, If I use a field that contains some blank cells, and set it as a report filter on the pivot table, blanks do not appear as an option in the report filter

That's interesting.  I ran a Pivot Table myself to test it out, and I found "(blank)" at the bottom of the drop down list for the filter.

Can you upload a sample so I can see the problem?

Yes I did.  It started to work for me and I posted my reply but for some reason I am having trouble posting replies from work.

I tried shutting down and restarting my computer.  It then started to work.
