I have a pivot table with 100 accounts showing charges against each account for each month over a time span. When I show a table with accounts listed in rows and monthly charges in columns, I get 100 rows of data with the grand total in the rightmost column. THINGS ARE GOOD.

When I build a table showing subtotals of charges over shorter time spans, some accounts will have no charges, and rows are not shown for the zero-value accounts. Hence, I get something less than 100 rows of data. NOT WHAT I WANT.

My objective is to build a table with 100 rows and various time span subtotals in columns. I am attempting to build this final table by manipulating the pivot table and cutting & pasting the grandtotal and/or subtotals into a final table (repeated as needed). THIS IS AN OBSTACLE.

The problem is that the number of rows changes depending on how many rows have zero values. Is there a way to force each pivot table to show 100 rows even if some of the values are zero? YOUR EXPERTISE IS NEEDED HERE.

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

In the pivot table query window, double-click on the variable you want to show and check the case in the bottom of the window stipulating that it'll show all content (sorry I've got excel in a french version and can't tell you the exact words written.)

Hope this helps.
