Organization: Knowledge Essentials

Created by: Knowledge Team


This course takes a deeper look at how to analyze data by using PivotTables in Excel 2016. When you create a PivotTable, Excel automatically totals the data by either summarizing or counting the items. If you are looking for more than a simple sum or count, or want to total only certain data in your PivotTable, you can customize how your data is presented and calculated using the value field settings. Another option would be to create a custom calculated field in your PivotTable. This course demonstrates several ways to analyze your data with PivotTables.

You must be able to organize your data so it is easy to understand and interpret. For example, you may want to show the best results at the top of a list. You can also filter the data found in a PivotTable or change the format of the PivotTable itself to ensure you have provided enough functionality without cluttering the overall experience. This course shows you how to accomplish these tasks.

A PivotTable is a powerful feature in Excel. It allows you to extract specific pieces of information from a larger set of data; in short, it allows you to focus on what you determine to be the important parts of that data. Utilize the information presented here and understand how to better sort, analyze, and present your data through PivotTables.
