Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Excel PivotTables and PivotCharts can instantly reveal insights that would otherwise need to be pried loose with a crowbar -- or stay buried in your data forever. With Excel 2007, Microsoft has revamped these features. But expert guidance is as welcome as ever -- especially, the help and hands-on walkthroughs Peter Aitken offers here.

Aitken's no-experience-necessary tutorial starts with the absolute basics: choosing internal and external data sources. You'll master Excel 2007's updated PivotTable/PivotChart toolset, including its powerful PivotTable components. And, since owning a hammer doesn't make everything a nail, Aitken also explains when PivotTables aren't the best solution, and points you to better alternatives.

By now, you're ready for the "majors": using PivotTables with multidimensional data in real OLAP applications. Aitken demystifies this; then introduces the fine art of automating PivotTables with VBA. You'll never look at your data the same way again. Bill Camarda, from the May 2007 Read Only

    Highly Recommended

    Easy to read, comprehensive, entertaining. This sounds funny, but the 2003 version of the book really did change my life. I'm not kidding. PivotTables are such a powerful analytical tool and this book is an excellent way to learn how to use them.
