Join Curt Frye for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding a trendline to a PivotChart, part of Excel 2016: Pivot Tables in Depth.
- When you analyze data using a pivot chart,…you must close attention…to the individual values in your data sets.…Evenso, it's often beneficial to take a step back…and look at the overall trends in your data.…You can enhance your analysis…by projecting future values,…assuming current trends stay constant,…by adding a trendline to your pivot chart.…I will show you how to add a trendline to a pivot chart.…As my sample file, I'll use the Trendline Excel workbook.…
You can find that in the Chapter06 folder…of your Exercise Files collection.…I have my data laid out in a line chart,…although I could also use a column chart.…And what I'd like to do is project future values,…say to the first quarter of 2016,…based on the existing values…within the pivot table data set.…So you can see here that I have data for 2014 and 2015,…all four quarters of both years.…
