## Hide Zero Values in Pivot Table in Excel: 3 Easiest Ways

Here’s a dataset of a store’s stock, showing the quantities and prices of some products and their production and expiration dates. Note that some prices and quantities are empty. Let’s make a Pivot Table from the dataset.

• Select the dataset.
• Click on Insert, choose Pivot Table, and select From Table/Range.

• A window named Pivot Table from table or range window will open. In the Table/Range field, you can automatically see the selected range.
• Tick New Worksheet and press OK.

• Excel will create the Pivot Table in a new worksheet.
• Click on the table, and in the right side of the sheet, select these 3 options: Products, Quantity, and Price (Per Unit).

• Our Pivot Table is ready.
• Let’s hide the zero values.

### Method 1 – Creating a Filter Field to Hide Zero Values in a Pivot Table

Steps:

• Click on the pivot table that you created from the dataset.
• On the right side, you will see PivotTable Fields.

• From the pivot table fields, drag the Quantity into the Filter field.

• Drag the Quantity into the Filter field.

• You will see two Filter options above the pivot table.

• Click on the dropdown on Quantity.
• Check Select Multiple Items.

• Uncheck the zero.
• Click on OK.

• There are no zero values in the Quantity column of the pivot table.

• Repeat the process for the Price(Per Unit) column.
• You can see that there are no zero values in the pivot table.

### Method2 – Using the Filter Function on a Pivot Table

Steps:

• Go to the Pivot Table.
• Select any element from the Row Labels. We have selected Butter.

• Right-click on your mouse and select Filter, then choose Value Filter.

• Select a column. We are choosing the Sum of Quantity column.
• Select does not equal to from the dropdown menu.
• Type 0 (Zero) in the following empty field.
• Click on OK.

• There are no zero values in the Quantity column.

• Repeat the process for the Price column if you want.

• If you do, the table will look like the following figure.

### Method 3 – Hide Zero Values from a Pivot Table Using the Format Cells Command in Excel

Steps:

• Select the entire table.

• Press Ctrl + 1 on your keyboard to open the Format Cells dialog box.
• Go to the Custom panel.
• Clear General from the Type field.
• Paste the following code in the field and press OK:
`0;-0;;@`

• There are no zero values in the pivot tables.

## Things to Remember

• The second method will hide zero values from a particular column, not from the whole pivot table.
• The third method will hide zero values, not the cells or rows.

## Practice Section

We have provided a Practice section on the right side of each sheet.
