PivotTables are a handy tool for summarizing large amounts of data efficiently and making it more manageable. Sometimes, though, it’s useful to be able to filter the data in a PivotTable, and Excel 2010 provides filtering functionality for this specific purpose. For those people who require a more visual representation of data, Excel 2010 provides a new feature called a Slicer, which is basically a graphical representation of a PivotTable filter. Excel also provides a number of ways in which you can apply calculations to the data in PivotTables in the form of summary functions and custom calculations. All of these useful features of Excel 2010 are introduced and described in this course.
