Excel Pivot Tables

Pivot tables are interactive worksheet tables that make it possible for you to manipulate, summarize, and analyze data from existing Excel tables. A PivotTable report is a cross-tabulated Excel report that combines and compares large amounts of data. You can rotate its rows and columns to see different summaries of the source data, and you can display the details for areas of interest.

You must have Microsoft Excel installed on your computer in order to create a pivot table. For more information about pivot tables, see Microsoft Office Online Assistance . For step-by-step instructions, a PivotTable Wizard can be invoked within Excel (See Help within Excel).
