Yesterday, in Episode #1733, it required two MATCH and one INDEX to Merge the Data from Two Worksheets. Today, in Episode #1734, using PowerPivot in Excel 2010, Bill shows us another way to find the Price for each Customer/Item combination. While PowerPivot is supposed to make life easier, this method still requires Two Concatenation Formulas, Two Ctrl+T, Two Add Linked Table, One drag from Key to Key, then One RELATED Function and an application of Mike Alexander’s trick from my Episode #493. Which is easier? #1733 or #1734?
