Your data is only as good as the information you can derive from it. Power Pivot enables you to gain better business insights and make more informed business decisions.
If you want to take your reporting capabilities to the next level by learning how to leverage the functionality of Power Pivot, this is a must-attend training session!
Why should you Attend:
NOTE: This course is not appropriate for Mac or iPad users as the functionality does not exist on those platforms.
Whilst Pivot Tables offer valuable data summarization features, they also have several limitations. They struggle with handling large datasets, they lack the ability to combine data from multiple datasets and the built-in calculation functionality is very simplistic.
This training focuses on the Data Model and Power Pivot, two of Excel's hidden gems which help to overcome the built-in limitations. For example, using Power Pivot you can…
- Create Pivot Tables from multiple lists/tables without the need to combine them into a single list first (goodbye LOOKUP and all the issues that it brings)
- Create Pivot Tables from large datasets without worrying about file size, performance or needing more rows than an Excel worksheet contains
- Create Pivot Tables from multiple data sources (Excel, database, text file etc)
- Create powerful calculations on the data in your Pivot Tables
- And more
For anyone who is serious about taking their Pivot Tables to the next level, this course is a must!
