Course Details

Building Business Intelligence with Pivot Tables is an online video course that is perfect for anyone looking to build reports and quickly summarize tens to thousands of rows of data. This course will provide the analyst with the best ways to source and clean up source data for reporting. As the data is cleansed, the course will show you how to present the data in a way that is easy to use for analysis by presenting data both tabular and visually. The course will further explore the best ways to analyze the data and drill in and out of data. By the end of this course, you will feel confident sourcing, cleansing, and analyzing data through pivot tables and dashboards.

What Will You Learn?

  • How to develop Excel Pivot Table reports and modify their aesthetics
  • How to leverage tools like Power Query and Power Pivot to enhance what’s possible with Pivot Tables
  • How to refresh Pivot Table local and external data


This is a course aimed squarely at beginner/intermediate Excel users looking to take their skills to the next level. Before starting this course, you should be comfortable working in Excel. Knowledge of a variety of formulas can be helpful, although is by no means necessary. While those comfortable with Pivot Tables are likely to pick up new tricks to make their lives easier, the course is designed to take someone with absolutely no Pivot Table knowledge and teach them how to collect, clean and set up the data, present it in Pivot Tables and build dashboards using Pivot Charts. A basic understanding of Excel functions is helpful, but not necessary for this course. The target audience of this course is for power users who are learning DAX for the first time.
