This course is for the expert user who has good experience with Microsoft Excel or has completed the five courses in our Beginner Series plus Expert Level 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 classes. This course will teach you how to work with PivotTables and PivotCharts in Excel.

We will begin by learning about PivotTables, what they are, why they're useful, and what you can do with them.

 

Next you'll build your first PivotTable. We'll start with a list of sales data that looks like this (don't worry, you can download the sample data sheet from my web site instead of having to type it all in).

 

You'll then turn it into a PivotTable report that shows a breakdown of each store (city) for each year, along with totals for each. This demonstrates the power of a PivotTable. You'll learn how to set row and column labels, assign your data values, and change the total function from COUNT to SUM, AVERAGE, MAX, and several others.

 

In the next lesson, we'll learn how to edit the PivotTable. You'll learn how to change the data fields in the PivotTable, set multiple fields per axis, expand and collapse levels, and filter & sort your data. You'll learn the difference between label filters, value filters, and report filters. You'll see what o "pivoting" your data means.

 

Next we'll learn about various PivotTable options. You'll learn how to work with multiple sets of values, change the PivotTable Pane Layout options, and defer the layout update. You'll explore several of the PivotTable Options, including setting a value for empty cells. You'll see how to create Slicers (a new feature in Excel 2010). You'll create Slicers for multiple values, and see how to select multiple items per Slicer.

 

Next we'll focus on PivotTable layout and design. You'll see how to show/hide subtotals and grand totals. You will see options for adding blank rows after groups of data, row and column headers, banded rows/columns, and PivotTable styles. You'll also learn a neat trick for creating a separate sheet showing a subset of your PivotTable data.

 

You will next learn how to create PivotCharts, which are essentially PivotTables in chart format. You'll learn many different formatting and layout options for PivotCharts, and how to move them to a separate sheet for easy printing.

 

Next you'll learn how to group data. Given a list of dates, for example, you'll see how to group them together by month (or year/month) in your PivotTable. You'll see how to create a custom date range, such as grouping by calendar week. You'll also see how to create a custom numeric grouping, such as age groups (15 to 24, 25 to 34, etc.)

 

Again, this is the perfect class for anyone who wants to learn how to work effectively with PivotTables and PivotCharts in Microsoft Excel 2010. Of course, if you have any questions about whether or not this class is for you, please contact me.
