Creating a Microsoft Excel pivottable is a great way to quickly break down data in multiple ways.

When you start using a pivottable in Microsoft Excel it can seem a little bit daunting. My experience has been that if you work with data that you fully understand, pivottables are much easier to work with. If the data is incomprehensible to you you will not understand what the data means when you pivot it. The data in this tutorial is very easy to understand and therefore makes it easy to show you how to work with pivottables.
