filter out 0 in pivot table

Frequent Contributor

Hello experts,


I need to filter out Zero (0) in a pivot table and I do not see how I can do that.  The issue is that th column in question is a "difference from previous" and it seems that the filtering option is no longer an option for a column calculated this way.


Grateful for you assistance.  

Please see attached sample file.

@Tony2021 Indeed, the built-in Filter option applies the "difference from" to the previous date displayed. Perhaps a more raw hack will work for you. Select cell K3 and switch on the auto filter.

This will insert filter buttons in row 3 of the pivot table. Now you can filter out the zero's from the Change column.


Hi Riny, thank you for the response but I have to say I do not see the option as described above. I click on the header called "Change", which is cell I3 and I right click and the below pic is what I see. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. thank you for the help.


Note:  I am not sure why the pic below appears as an attachment instead of a viewable pic like you posted in your post.  Maybe there is a hack for that?

I got it now. I thought in your response above when you referred to K3 I thought it was a type since K3 is outside of the pivot but it seems this is a a hack. I see now. Very nice indeed.

thank you.
