Good day. I am a beginner of excel user. I have met a trouble in using Pivot Table.
I want to make a report but i found that i can't add a blank row for the category which is not include in the data.
For example, I obtain a transaction record of customer in Jan and I would like to make a transaction report for customer A,B,C,D,E. It is noted that customer E did not make any transaction in Jan and thus there is no record for Customer E in the database (Transaction Record). When I use the pivot table, it works properly for customer A,B,C,D. But how can I add one more row for customer E in the pivot table in order to record for the zero transaction in the report?
Another way, not to add dummy records every time, you may add separate table with list of all your customers, create relationship with your transactions table on customers, and use customers name from the second table creating Pivot Table. When create it, check 'Add data to data model' box. In Pivot Table options, Display tab, check 'Show item with no data on rows' box.
If you have long table of transactions where all customers exist, and you filter Pivot Table on month in which some customers make no transactions, it'll be enough to check 'Show items...'
