About This Class

This class is Part 2 of a three-part series (Microsoft Excel - Data Analysis with PivotTables) covering data analysis with Excel PivotTables and PivotCharts.

PivotTables are an absolutely essential tool for anyone working with data in Microsoft Excel. Pivots allow you to quickly explore and analyze raw data, reveal powerful insights and trends otherwise buried in the noise, and provide fast, accurate and intuitive solutions to even the most complicated questions.

In this part of the course we'll focus on data visualization techniques using PivotCharts, slicers, timelines, and custom, interactive dashboards. 

Finally we'll wrap up with Part 3, where we'll tie it all together and explore several advanced, real-world case studies!


  • Microsoft Excel (2010, 2013, 2016), ideally for PC
  • Mac users are welcome, but note that the PivotTable interface varies across platforms
  • Basic experience with Excel functionality (charts & formulas a plus!)

I have previously take an advance excel course where they explained pivot tables but that course can not compare to this great material with exercises, tips and tricks. I did the 1st part, the 2nd and I will be doing the 3rd. Looking fwd more courses from this instructor.
