Excel® users that regularly manipulate, analyze, or present data can improve their productivity substantially by utilizing PivotTables. Many users avoid PivotTables even though they know how powerful they are because they believe PivotTables are confusing to work with and hard to use. Additionally, many people know that PivotTables provide benefit but do not realize the depth of capabilities that this reporting and analysis feature possesses. This session shows users that with a basic understanding of PivotTable conventions, the intimidation factor disappears. Additionally, it details the robust feature set built into PivotTables.
