Excel Power User Module 8: PivotTable vs. Formula-Based Reports
The Excel Power User series helps you improve your Excel proficiency and quickly complete tasks.
This session begins by comparing the formula-based reports we built previously to PivotTables. Dig into the details between these two report types so you are comfortable with applying them to specific workbooks. Create two versions of many reports, one version with formulas and the other with PivotTables so you become comfortable replacing formula-based reports with PivotTables when appropriate.
