    Hello, I have a worksheet with a pivot table that I'm trying to import into Access but Access has a hard time decifering the information. I have linked a second worksheet to the source and reformatted all the cells to read into a simple spreadsheet for better importing results. However, all my links return a value of zero if the cell in source sheet is blank. I would like this returned value to be blank if the source cell is blank. I have tried tools/options/view and deselected zero values but Access still reads these cells as zero. Is there a way to override this default? Please help.
    Thank you,
    David

    You might want to automate this...

    Pull your file into Excel. Run an update query that replaces all values of zero with null.
