DSD: Pivot Tables in Excel - Workshop
Course Description:

Pivot tables can be used to analyse, summarize and present large amounts of data. Once a Pivot Table has been created it can be reorganized in various ways using features such as filtering, sorting, changing functions or displaying as a Pivot Chart.

In this introductory workshop you will create several pivot tables and experiment with many useful features using several data lists provided.

Once you have booked on the course you will be able to access all of the online materials in our Digital Skills Development Moodle course.
