You can experiment it by creating a calculated field in the data table and create a helper column to check if the calculated field contains 0 and then return a True else a False in it. Now you may add that helper column in the Report field of pivot table and apply filter to show True only.
The formula for the helper column would be something like this....


Open in new window

Where D2 is the cell in the Calculated Field Column and this formula can be placed in col. E to return True or False based on the values returned by the Calculated Field.

If this doesn't help, you may consider uploading a sample workbook.
Try this....

I see that you managed to insert a filter on the calculated field, but I don't know how you did it....
Subodh Tiwari (Neeraj)Excel & VBA ExpertCommented:
To achieve that, right click on any value under the Row labels and select Filters --> Value Filters and then select your Calculated Field from the drop down in the first box, select equal from the second box and in the third box type 0 and click on OK.

Hope this helps.
