Full course description

Course Description:

One of our flagship workshops, we will introduce the essential steps required to build and modify PivotTables in Excel spreadsheets which will likely save you substantial time!  Topics include: building an initial table, adjusting fields and options for simple or in-depth analysis, filters and slicers, basic PivotCharts, and more!  We will be analyzing a wide range of data, from budget and financial transactions through scientific research data sets.  (If you ever have to pull reports, this workshop may help!)  An optional (but highly-recommended) 30-minute practice lab immediately follows the workshop.

“Being able to quickly analyze data can help you make better decisions. But sometimes it’s hard to know where to start, especially when you have a lot of data. PivotTables are a great way to summarize, analyze, explore, and present your data, and you can create them with just a few clicks. PivotTables are highly flexible and can be quickly adjusted depending on how you need to display your results. You can also create PivotCharts based on PivotTables that will automatically update when your PivotTables do.” (Microsoft)

Prerequisites: Participants should have at least a basic working knowledge of Excel spreadsheets.
