Education Excel PivotTables Assignment

Excel PivotTables Assignment (10 Points)

An Excel PivotTable is used to present Excel information in a table format. The idea is that you can click drop down lists and change the data that is being displayed (hence, you may “pivot” information into and out of the table). For example, in a teacher’s grade book, you may choose just one student from a drop-down list of students, and then display only the one student’s scores.

In this assignment, you watch two videos, and then complete a short PivotTable exercise. Place your completed PivotTable exercise file in this week’s D2L Assignment dropbox.

1st Video: Pivot Table Excel Tutorial by Kevin Stratford

The first video shows how PivotTables may be used to display a company’s inventory. Do not try to memorize the specific steps being demonstrated, just focus on how the presenter “pivots” information into and out of the PivotTable depending upon the information he wants to display.
