Power Pivot removes many of the limitations and frustrations that users find with creating Pivot Tables in Excel. For example, using Power Pivot you can…

  • Create Pivot Tables from multiple lists/tables without the need to combine them into a single list first (goodbye LOOKUP and all the issues that it brings)
  • Create Pivot Tables from large datasets without worrying about file size, performance or needing more rows than an Excel worksheet contains
  • Create Pivot Tables from multiple data sources (Excel, database, text file etc)
  • Create powerful calculations on the data in your Pivot Tables
  • And more



In this training, you will learn, using practical examples, how Power Pivot provides Business Intelligence and reporting functionality within the familiar environment of Excel to provide you with better business insights and enable you to make more informed business decisions.
