For those looking to dig a bit deeper, this video demonstrates how PivotTable values are actually calculated and displayed based on different table layouts and Field List settings.
- [Instructor] Alright, I want to take a minute…and review another concept related…to pivot tables source data that many Excel users…aren't familiar with.…That's something called the pivot cache.…Now anytime you create a new pivot table like this one,…based on a source table arrange,…what Excel's actually doing is creating a compressed,…duplicate version of that source data…in memory called the cache.…And that cache is optimized to allow pivot tables…to work very, very quickly.…
That's why we can filter and sort thousands…and thousands of rows almost instantaneously,…because the pivot is working off of that cache copy,…not the actual raw table or source range.…Now there's some very interesting implications…to the pivot table cache.…One of which is that if we're dealing…with static source data, in other words source data…that's not going to change or grow over time,…what we can actually do is delete the raw data itself…from which the pivot was created…and continue to work off the cache…as if nothing ever changed.…
