Simplify Your Data Management and Analysis by using PivotTables in Microsoft Excel (It’s VERY easy to do)

Imagine being faced with a pile of data that you need to organize and summarize in a hurry. And what’s more, you have to present the information in a way that highlights specific aspects of the data.

If this sounds familiar, the PivotTable® report feature in Microsoft Office Excel 2003 could be what you’re looking for. PivotTable reports are interactive tables that make it possible for you to move information around, so that you can see how it fits together. PivotTable reports help you to organize and compare data so that you can see patterns, trends, and relationships. And it takes only seconds to pivot the rows and columns of data from one view to another, like turning a kaleidoscope to see the different patterns.  (I use this feature every day on tens of thousands of records and it only takes 10 seconds to go from spreadsheet mayhem to PivotTable bliss)

Thank you and have a wonderful day,
