PIVOT TABLES
Suppose you have data for a company
s sales transactions by month, by salesperson, and by amount for each
product type. You would like to display each salesperson
s total sales by type of product sold and by month.
You can use a pivot table in Excel to tabulate that summary data. A pivot table is built around one or more
dimensions and thus can summarize large amounts of data. Figure E-12 shows total sales cross-tabulated by
salesperson and by month.
