More pivot table secrets revealed
Pivot tables return by popular demand! Consultant David Carter is back at AccountingWEB with another of his vital guides to using pivot tables in Excel.
David's previous tutorial on this invaluable Excel tool was the most visited part of AccountingWEB last year, and this second rundown, on sales analysis, should prove to be just as much of a hit.
David's second tutorial lets you analyze complicated sales data quickly and easily from accounting packages such as Sage, Pegasus, SunAccount, Navision etc.
Online students will learn how to import data in a Text file, the lowest common denominator file format, using Excel’s Import wizard, then break it down with pivot tables.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
