Microsoft Excel PivotTables Course

About Course

Having worked with Excel for well over a decade in global companies, I’ve seen the rapid rise of data volumes over the last few years. Although many people only deal with ‘Small Data’ (Less than 5000 rows of 15-20 columns), larger data sets are on the rise, and you need to get comfortable dealing with them. Let’s get started with our in-depth excel pivot table course in which you will be able to know what is a pivot table in excel, how to use pivot tables, and what is the purpose of pivot tables. 

Here are five good reasons you want to consider learning Pivot Tables in a world of increasing data levels:

1. Speed of calculation

Once you are over 5000 rows X 15-20 columns, formulas can slow down; Excel Pivot Table training helps you run off the ‘Pivot Cache,’ a makeshift memory that will keep the calculations quick.

2. Get a perspective on existing data…really quickly

This is what I often refer to as quick and dirty analysis; we’ve just been landed with some data and want to understand it, so I’ll throw it into an excel Pivot Table tutorial and have a quick play around. Usually, I’ll uncover some headline number insights and also dodgy data that will go away and fix.

3. Summarise your information…really quickly

This is focused on summarizing, so you should have a grasp of your data; you create Pivot Table excel of what you expect, then you spend a few minutes playing around with slicing and dicing to see if you can get more insights. If not, time to move on.

4. Where Pivots shine more than formulas

Grouping data summaries, especially when reporting quarterly data, it’s a lot more work to do this with formulas; you can do it, I used to do it, but I would suggest letting excel Pivot Tables practice do the heavy lifting here.

5. Interface with PowerPivot

This is more advanced when your data set is very large (greater than >100,000 rows…occasionally 50,000 rows * 15-20 columns), then Pivot tables will slow down, so you need Power Pivot, which is like taking out the Pivot Tables ford engine and replacing it with a V8!
