PivotTables are one of Excel's most powerful features, but they seem to divide Excel users into fanatical advocates and those who just don't see the point. This course will explain how PivotTables can be useful to almost any Excel user. Starting with the basics of using a simple PivotTable to summarise financial data it will show how PivotTables can simplify a range of practical Excel tasks from identifying best-selling products to consolidating branch data and acting as the engine for an automated performance dashboard.
Please note this is not a ‘hands-on’ course, but will provide practical advice, demonstrated through examples and with comprehensive documentation. The Examples will be based on the latest version of Excel but where an earlier version (2007 onwards) differs substantially this will be highlighted on the course.
