How to Do a Pivot Table in Excel

A pivot table is a data summarization tool that allows you to quickly and easily create a summary of data from a large table. The summary can be in the form of a table, graph, or chart.

To create a pivot table in Excel, first you need to have some data in a table format. The data can be in a worksheet, or it can be in a separate table. Once you have the data, select the entire table. Then, on the Insert tab, in the Tables group, click PivotTable.

Excel will create a new worksheet and insert a pivot table placeholder. The fields in the pivot table will be based on the headers in the table you selected.

To create a summary, drag the fields you want to include in the pivot table to the Row, Column, and Values areas. You can also drag a field to the Filter area to create a filter.

Once the summary is created, you can change the layout, format the data, and create charts and graphs based on the data. You can also group and sum the data in the pivot table.
