Don't count empty cells in pivot table

New Contributor

I'm having an issue in my pivot table when I sum a column it says the total is zero (when in the data it is not zero) but in the count numbers are appearing. The format of the data in the sheet is "General" evem though it looks like it should be currency and has $ signs before the actual numbers. Can someone please help?

If you =ISTEXT() on any of such cells in your sources table does it return FALSE?

It returns TRUE. What should I do?

You need convert them to numbers. If your column now in General format try Ctrl+H and replace all $ characters on nothing.

Great, thank you!!! It works now :)
