Take an in-depth look at PivotTables and PivotCharts, two of the most powerful data analysis tools in Excel. Learn how to leverage these two features together to more efficiently evaluate your data.
- Hey, everyone, Chris Dutton here, and welcome to Excel Pivot Tables, Part One: Mastering Pivot Tables and Pivot Charts. In this course, we'll begin by discussing when and why to use pivot tables, and then review some core concepts, like navigating the field list, customizing table layouts, and refreshing and updating source data. From there, we'll dive into formatting options, sorting and filtering tools, and calculated values and fields. Finally, we'll practice visualizing our data with pivot charts, and even build an interactive dashboard, using towards like slicers, and timelines.
