If we click on Statistics and then Conversations. The window that opens shows conversations between different units during collection. Why is it 0 under packets and changes for transport B to A when Address B is Broadcast?

Which Conversation Type (tab at top) are you looking at?

Hey, Thanks for your reply. Under the tab at the top "Statistics" You find "Conversations". If we look at "Ethernet" > Adress B Packets B > A then we find it 0 for all Broadcast adresses and my question is why is it 0?

When a device responds to a broadcast frame, the source address is it's MAC address.
So there will not be any packets where the source address (B->) is ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff.
