We will contact you with joining instructions before your course starts.
What will we cover?
• The field-item question: how to organize data before they reach the pivot table
• Grouping data and rounding them off: possible pitfalls
• Why grouping data in one pivot table groups them in others in the same workbook (whether you want that to happen or not), along with a workaround
• Relational pivot table queries
• Calculated fields – when do you need one?
• Generating a count of unique records in a data set.

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?
The session assumes the user is familiar with pivot tables. You should have completed our Pivot tables: introduction course or have equivalent knowledge or experience.
How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?

Abbott Katz has instructed Excel at numerous corporate and university venues, on both sides of the Atlantic - and both sides of the Channel. A native New Yorker with a doctorate in sociology, Abbott has written two books on Excel (Apress), authored the www.spreadsheetjournalism.com blog, and designs spreadsheets in a consultative capacity. He offered a 5-session, Excel-driven Data Stories workshop last year at the Sciences Po University in Paris (in English!), and his work with the application has been cited by the Wall Street Journal, the Guardian, the Freakonomics blog, and the spreadsheet expert Chandoo.
