Excel 2007: Pivot Tables for Data Analysis

with Curt Frye

Video: Welcome

(Music playing) Hi! I am Curt Frye. Welcome to Excel 2007 Pivot Tables for Data Analysis. In this course, I'll show you how to use pivot tables to make sense of your organization's data. I'll begin by showing you how to create a pivot table from data already in your Excel workbooks. Then, using that knowledge as a base, I'll demonstrate how to create pivot tables using data from an external source. We'll enhance your ability to analyze your data by showing how to reorganize or pivot a pivot table. After you have organized your pivot table's data you can sort the data to show relative importance and relevance or create filters that enable you to focus on that data you need to develop useful insights into your business.
