Course description

PivotTables are perhaps the most powerful analysis tool in Excel, but many people do not use PivotTables because they appear more complex than they actually are.

If you spend a lot of time in Excel without using PivotTables, chances are that you spend a lot of time on calculation, summarising, and analysis, all of which Excel can do for you.

By creating a PivotTable it is easier to see comparisons, patterns and trends in your data.

The aim of the course is that you will be able to efficiently navigate Excel in order to analyse and visualise data with a PivotTable.
