  • Filtering your report to display subsets of the data and reveal hidden insights about your customers, product lines, and other subsets of data sets.
  • Formatting your reports, sorting them automatically, manually, or based on pre-determined sort orders, as well as grouping them based on user-defined groups that reflect your business environment.
  • Adding formulas to your PivotTables and Charts so they include the calculations and ratios that are specific to your needs.
  • Incorporate your PivotTables reports and Charts into Word documents and linking them so they stay up-to-date
