Hi, I'm a pivot table beginner - I just started this morning. I only know the most basic steps. I have a problem though, my pivot table has a row label that says "(blank)", and the corresponding value is also empty. I tried deleting it but I get an error message "Cannot change this part of a PivotTable report." I'm using Excel 07. Can anyone help me please? Thanks :)
