Using a PivotTable, you can quickly create a compact summary report (based on tons of data) without needing to write complex formulas in Excel or rely on lengthy techniques. 

The PivotTable feature is perhaps Excel’s best analytical tool and in addition to its speed, you get amazing flexibility and dynamism that let you quickly change the data interrelationships you’re viewing.

why should you attend

Most PivotTable users discover that the feature is relatively easy to learn, but not so easy if you are simply seeing the instructions on the printed page; this is a visually oriented feature based on displaying fields in different locations. 

You’ll be amazed to see how, in very little time, you can create a complete summary report with tons of data and you won’t even need to write Excel spreadsheet formulas and rely on obscure techniques.
