I'm trying to created a Calculated Field in a Pivot Table with an IF statement that goes something like this

Excel Formula:

`=IF(Field2="(blank)",Field1,Field2)`

But Excel doesn't seem to find any "(blank)" cells when that formula is entered into the calculated field, even though the below formula returns TRUE when placed in a cell outside the Pivot Table, as a check (Note the value in G3 is "(blank)"

Excel Formula:

`=G3="(blank)"`

So it seems that a regular formula vs one used for a Calculated Field handles the blank cells differently.

If I change the "(blank)" to a 0 as shown below, it works, but then any cell that actually has a zero in it (vs "(blank)") is considered TRUE in the logical test. I need the calculated field to only consider actual blank cells as TRUE and everything else as FALSE (including zeros). But I'm not sure how to write the IF statement to differentiate between the two. I appreciate any help on the matter!

Excel Formula:

`=IF(Field2=0,Field1,Field2)`
