In this lecture we'll get familiar with the course materials and curriculum, including core topic areas, downloadable resources, homework exercises and quizzes.
In this lecture I'll introduce you to the IMDb Movie Database, which we'll be working with through the first several sections of the course.
In this lecture I'll explain the purpose of Excel's PivotTable cache, describe how it can be used to reduce file sizes by storing data in memory, and demonstrate how to revive source data from cache using the "show details" option.
PivotTables can be an incredibly useful tool for creating brand new tables from existing source data in Excel, whether you want to aggregate your data at a different level of granularity, eliminate certain fields, or add new calculated metrics. This lecture demonstrates how this can be done using specific table layouts and design tools.
In this lecture I'll show you how to change the scope of your conditional formatting rules to customize how they react to changes in your Excel PivotTable layout.
Learn how to adjust Excel PivotTable settings to allow you to apply multiple filters (label + value) to the same field.
If you need to generate multiple copies of a PivotTable view with different filter settings (i.e. a view of product sales for each region or country), the "Report Filter Pages" option is a lifesaver. In this lecture, we'll see how this tool can be used to instantly break out multiple views into their own Excel worksheets.
In this demo, we'll practice building a dynamic Excel dashboard using Pivot Charts, slicers and timelines.
In this Excel PivotTable case study we'll explore a 3-month sample of US stock market data, including Open, High, Low and Close prices as well as trading volume for 500 individual stocks.
In this Excel PivotTable case study we'll explore customer-submitted burrito ratings from a number of Mexican restaurants in San Diego. Data includes the burrito and restaurant name as well as 0-5 ratings based on tortilla quality, temperature, meat volume, uniformity, synergy, and more.
In this Excel PivotTable case study we'll analyze information from 130,000+ wine tastings, including average point ratings, prices, and written reviews.
