About the course

Save a ton of time as you analyze data quickly and easily!

When you need to crunch database-like data, you can only go so far with sorting, filtering, and inserting subtotals.

What you need are ways to create summary totals based on multiple criteria and the ability to interchange fields, add other fields, and sort results in a flash. Moreover, how great would it be if you could do all these things and never need to deal with complex, lengthy formulas?

The Microsoft® Excel PivotTable tool gives you all of these capabilities, plus dozens of display and manipulation features.

Consider this scenario: You have thousands of detailed rows of sales data covering a five-year period, containing the names of salespersons, sales dates, items sold, location of sales by state and region, names of buyers, dollar amounts, and more. Imagine if you could quickly create a table to show the total sales by salesperson by state without writing any formulas…and complete the task in under 10 seconds!

How to use this built-in Excel® tool to simplify your data analysis chores

Then, without skipping a beat, alter that table to show total sales by month or by year simply by changing a field’s location!

The possibilities are seemingly endless, and you can apply these same tools just as easily to a variety of data—perhaps an HR list, an inventory list, a detailed budget, a contact list…and so on.

This webinar shows you exactly how to use the PivotTable tool to quickly analyze even huge amounts of data in less time than you ever thought possible.
