Pivot Tables are extremely useful in Excel. This Advanced Excel video lesson is a follow-up to the Introduction to Pivot Tables and covers the first round of advanced topics.

The lesson goes over some additional Pivot Table options and features including:

– Drill-down functionality which creates a summary sheet of any Pivot Table amount selected.

– Pivot Table Options including show/hide totals, error/empty cell display options, and refresh when opening workbook (and more).

– Value calculation options including sum/count/average, % of grand total, and % of parent row / parent column total.

– Formatting / display options including row/column label layout, sorting labels, and other formatting.

As always, download the latest version of the **Master Workbook** to follow along at home.

Does anyone know how to access the “Layout & Print” tab found in “Field Settings”—or its equivalent—when using Excel on a Mac? The information shown here as being in the “Subtotals & Filters” tab shows up, but there’s no Layout & Print tab.

Session is marvelous

Excellent – I am a fan – thank you!

THANKS FOR ALL

Great lessons! You are indispensable! Your explanations are very precise and clear!

In the formatting options in 6″ though I can not drag down the Employee to the Row label- it gives me a message that a pivot table can not overlap another pivot table. Any idea what I’m doing wrong?

Brilliant and easy to understand – thank you for sharing
