About Excel Pivot Table Training CourseOne of the most powerful tools that you have your disposal when analysing data is the PivotTable. While extremely useful, these interactive objects are somewhat cumbersome to execute properly and are often misused. For this reason, it is important to understand how they work and gain some fundamental understanding of their purpose before creating PivotTables of your own data. This class will give you the tools to confidently create PivotTables, use Slicers and PivotCharts to analyse your data.
While regular filters can be effective in drilling down through your data, they can quickly become a chore to manage. Between having to clear existing filters before applying new ones and trying to determine which data is actively being filtered out, filters definitely have some downsides. To give you more control over filtering capabilities, Excel provides Slicers. Class participants will learn how to create useful Slicers to slice and dice data without using cumbersome filters.
PivotTables are fantastic at analysing your data, but they are not so great at being able to quickly convey it. To solve this problem, PivotTable data can quickly be converted into charts just as you can with regular datasets. During this course, you will learn how to use PivotCharts to present PivotTable data visually.
While the default appearance of your worksheets can be quite plain, Excel offers you access to a variety of graphical objects that you can use to enhance their visual appeal. Over the course of this topic, you will learn all about the various different types of graphical objects that you can add to your worksheets, as well as the various contextual tabs that are used to work with them.
One of the most important aspects that you need to understand while working with your data in Excel is how to protect Excel files from data loss, as well as unauthorized access. Over the course of this program, you will learn about the various ways that Excel can protect your work.
