Hi! I'm taking an online course on Excel, and we're now learning about these things. I have read the textbook and done the exercises, but I'm still confused as to what they do and why. Could someone dumb it down for me please?

I may have more questions as time moves on.

Thank you!

A PivotTable summarises any list of data. The summary object is very flexible, as you are allowed to change the shape, showing categories in columns or rows or both. Charting for a PivotTable is called a PivotChart.

A useful site from Debra Dalgleish ( remember that name - if you are going to be looking at PivotTable info online you will see it a lot ):
