Chapter 20. Analyzing Data: PivotTables! > The Magic of PivotTables

The Magic of PivotTables

You've learned in other chapters how to analyze data using outlines, subtotals, filters, and other techniques. For relatively simple analysis of data, these tools work fine. However, they fall short when you need to analyze larger, more complex data, or when you need more flexible analysis tools.

PivotTables, introduced in Excel 95, are a powerful weapon in your analysis arsenal. In this chapter, you learn how to create and use PivotTables to explore relationships in your data that aren't available using other tools. As you will see, PivotTables are a major analysis feature of Excel and learning to make the most of them will greatly benefit you.
