PivotTables can be a major time save when it comes to analyzing data. PivotTables allow you the flexibility of an interactive layout of columns, rows, values and filters. When you apply filters in your PivotTable or change your view Excel will automatically recalculate totals and update the layout. This training helps employees learn how to prepare data and then create PivotTables within Microsoft Excel 2016.

The video provides a step-by-step look at how to prepare data for a PivotTable and create a PivotTable from a single local data source, multiple local data sources, or an external data source. After the training the user should be able to navigate through PivotTables and know how to create them from different sources.

Use this course to demystify the creation of PivotTables and gain new perspective on your data when you use PivotTables during analysis.
