And (again) much more…
There are several reasons why it’s prudent for you to develop these skills:
1) Availability, 2) Power and flexibility, 4) Speed.
Let me quickly explain…
1) You want to learn Pivot Tables simply because they are available to you right now.
Think about it. Let’s say, you are already using Excel to create stunning spreadsheets. You may be comfortable with formulas and functions. You know how to do formatting - to make your workbooks look top-notch professional, but you don’t know how to use Pivot Tables.
Why not? After all they are already there for you benefit. There is nothing extra to install. They are part of Excel.
What would you say to a carpenter, who is using only manual tools and ignores the electrical ones? Would you hire someone who uses a hammer instead of a nail gun - because he never took the step to learn how to use it?
Pivot Tables are available for your benefit to learn immediately - they are already in your tool box. Learn them! Otherwise, you’ll never discover what you are missing.
2) You need to learn Pivot Tables because of their unmatched power and flexibility.
Pivot Tables is a kick-ass, flexible reporting tool.
If you’ve ever had to run a report from a database, chances are, it struck you as being a bit fixed. It reflects the mindset of whoever created it. It may not be exactly what you want form the start. Of course, if you want, you can create your own report, but it will take time. With Pivot Tables, you can change things on the fly. You can experiment. It takes minutes, or even seconds. You can modify things at (almost) the speed of light. If you know how.
You can quickly format your reports exactly the way you (or your bosses) want. It will dramatically improve your productivity and creativity when working with data.
In this course, I’ll reveal to you what massive difference it makes. Believe me, it feels like freedom.
3) It’s crucial for you to learn Pivot Tables to become instantly and infinitely more productive.
When you go though this course, you’ll realize that without Pivot Tables, certain tasks would have taken weeks or even months to accomplish.
It’s amazing. I’ve actually met Excel users who were - oblivious to the existence of Pivot Tables - scrambling for weeks to consolidate data into a report. With Pivot Tables you can crank the same task in a matter of minutes.
Don’t be them - learn the right way (the Pivot-Tables way). You life will never be the same.
Pivot Tables is your secret weapon. As you learn it, you’ll be astonished and pleased every step of the way. When you have learned it - it’ll help you succeed.
It’s gonna be great! When you are ready, enroll in this course and let’s begin!
P.S. Important warning!
After you have perused this course, your skills will be on a much higher level than those of many of your colleagues. Fundamentally, you’ll “leave them all in the dust” - skill-wise.
You’ll be much faster and more efficient at many Excel tasks then most of them.
People don’t like that. They will get nervous and threatened. Be careful!
There are two things you can do to soothe their sorrows.
1) Share this course with them, so they can also get to your level. It will be a very classy gesture on your part. They will appreciate you even more.
2) Be very gentle with them when demonstrating the superior knowledge and power that you accumulated in this course. Try not to destroy their ego. You wouldn’t want them to feel inferior to you, would you? Be nice.
P.P.S. There are no prerequisites for this course, but it will be easier for you if you already know the most important Excel concepts. If you are a beginner, I highly recommend to take my “Basic Excel Tutorial - Jumpstart Training Course” before you enroll in this course right here.
Here we start to learn about the power of Pivot Tables and create the first one.
Pivot Tables are vulnerable to the junk in junk out principle. In this lecture we learn about the importance of having a good data and go through some examples. Of course, we keep learning how to create Pivot Tables.
Pivot Tables are based on data sources. We learn about adding data to an existing data source and become familiar with various issues of it.
Here we learn about creating a Pivot Table report based on a so-called Excel Table.
Here we add some data to an existing Excel Table and discover what it means to our existing Pivot Tables.
In this video we go through the Pivot Table Design contextual tab on the ribbon.
Here we talk about prevention your pivot table report from updating for the time being.
Here we take a closer look at the Pivot Table Builder -- that is where the Pivot Table Fields are.
Grouping is an extremely powerful part of Pivot Tables. We begin talking about grouping dates.
Here we continue to learn about grouping and take a look at grouping numbers.
Grouping by selection. This is another awesome possibility that provides lots of flexibility.
Here we look at how we can use Pivot Table to quickly count things.
Pivot Tables is not only about powerful reports, they are also an awesome data extraction tool. Here we learn how to use it.
After we create our Pivot Table report, it can live happily without the underlying data source. We explore such interesting approach in this video lesson.
In this video lesson we take the first look at other ways to show our data in Pivot Tables.
We can do calculations in Pivot Tables too! You learn about calculated fields and create the first one in this lesson.
Calculated Item is another type of calculation from which you can benefit in Pivot Tables. An extra tool in your toolbox.
When we begin using Pivot Tables, sometimes we do not know exactly what kind of report we want. The new Recommended Pivot Tables feature gives you an easy start. We explore this feature in this lesson.
A Pivot Chart is a visual presentation of your Pivot Table Report. Here we take our first look at them.
We begin working on a real data set. This is the first assignment.
Here I tell you what I think about the data set that we are working with and show you how to fix it.
We continue working on our Woman Owned Retail Businesses data set. I give you the further assignment in this video.
We go through creating the first report based on the Woman Owned Seattle Retail Businesses list.
We quickly nail the Top Ten Zip Codes report.
We re-create the Top 10 Industries report.
Now it is time to create a report where we count all the businesses that have a small-business designation and the ones that do not. Very easy!
Here we prepare an easy report in which we compare how many businesses have a fax number and how many do not.
Here we prepare a quick cross-tab report that counts businesses registered as Woman-Owned by Month and Year.
In this video lesson we take the first look at one more real-life data set. It contains United States per capita GDP data by state. Is this data set ready for Pivot Tables?
Here we fix our data set and prepare it for Pivot Tables.
Hi, I am Igor Ovchinnikov.

Well, frankly, I always have some serious cognitive dissonance whenever I have to write about myself in the third person like this. It’s a bit silly - don’t you agree? So, enough of this out-of-body talk!
First of all, you probably don’t care about me that much. Second, you are probably more interested in why you should buy my courses and what’s in them for you? You may be more interested in how my teaching is different compared to the other great instructors out there?
I have to confess, it is something I've been wondering about too. You know, when someone asks you what you are good at, it’s tough to answer that. Especially, because when you are really good at something, you don’t really perceive it as a big deal. Don’t you agree? Think of something you do really well. Now, do you really work hard on it, or does it come kind of naturally?
So, to answer this question to myself, I recently decided to ask my students. Most of the ones I polled are employees of just one organization where I teach - Stanford University, so the research sample may not be fully scientific. Anyway, I asked a few dozens of my students what they liked best about my teaching style. It was really surprising, that most of them told me that their favorite part was how clear things became after I explained it to them. One of them said literally: “You are a great explainer. It was so confusing before, and now I finally understand it!”
I think, here’s what I can promise you when you enroll in my courses. I promise you clear explanations, so that things will be no longer confusing.
So, here’s my value proposition to you:
When you enroll in my courses and go through the material, you should expect clear explanations that will help you learn and build your skills fast, so you can succeed at your job.
If that is the experience that you are interested in, simply enroll in my courses below.
