Excel expert David Ringstrom, CPA, shows you step-by-step how to push the boundaries of pivot tables and add even more interactivity to them by grouping data in various ways. In this comprehensive course, David explains how to easily extract data from Microsoft Access, create simple macros that can resolve the most frustrating aspects of pivot tables, determine the number of duplicates in a list, reap the benefits of Excel’s Slicer feature, sort data in any order you desire, and much more.
David demonstrates every technique at least twice: first, on a PowerPoint slide with numbered steps, and second, in Excel 2016. He draws your attention to any differences in Excel 2013, 2010, or 2007 during the presentation as well as in his detailed handouts. David also provides an Excel workbook that includes most of the examples he uses during the webcast.
