This workshop will introduce you to the Excel Pivot Table feature for analyzing worksheet data. Analyzing data can help you in decision making.

They are highly flexible and can be quickly adjusted depending on how you need to display your results.

Please bring a Excel spreadsheet with data for your Pivot Table demonstration.
