Some of the things you will learn in this course:

PivotTable Basics

In this course, you’ll start by quickly and efficiently learning the basics of PivotTables, including how the database is structured, how it is updated, and why you should always create a table of the database before you make a PivotTable.

Analyse all types of data

This course helps you analyze all kinds of data, whether it’s revenue over time, costs broken down by department, analysing responses in a survey, etc.

Group data

Many databases contain a column made up of dates or times. This means that in your PivotTable you may need to analyse data and key figures by year, quarter, month, week, or day. PivotTables allow you to efficiently group based on dates, something you’ll learn in this course.

PivotCharts and Slicers

It can sometimes be easier to analyse data by seeing it, for example, in the form of a bar or pie chart. It’s an effective way to visually present data after you’ve finished an analysis for a colleague or manager. The combination of charts and slicers can be magical and lifts your PivotTables to new heights.
