This looks ugly when you are presenting important information.  Luckily you can override this with a custom value or text.

To activate this you need to Right Click in any Value in your Excel Pivot Table and choose PivotTable Options and “Check” the box that says: For error values show

This activates the box and you can now enter any value or text that you want to show whenever your calculation has an error.
