    Hiding Pivot Rows (Excel 2000)

    Is it possible to hide pivot table rows-or not print them- based on a calculated field A-B <>0? I am trying to use the efficiencies of a PT to bypass numerous extraneous columns in a table. But there are 7k rows if every row has to be shown. So I'd like to hide the rows that where A-B=0 so that only rows with problems are shown/printed. I didn't seem to find a direct disucssion of this using search. Nor could I see an option, but I may have missed something. TYIA

    How about adding an autofilter to the pivot table, and filter those out where the difference is 0 (if that is not a column in the data, you can create one easily enough after pivoting)

    Did not know one could do that...anything special I should know about setting it up? I'll give it a try: sounds like the answer. Thanks.

    I just tried an AutoFilter after Selecting the Entire table: it was greyed out...looks as if it can't be done.

    Go to the cell immediately to the right of the pivot table "header row".
    data-filter - autofilter and it will add it to the pivot columns
