On the right of the excel window we could see a variety of options we could choose for the pivot table. We start from the top with the pivot table fields. We could choose different fields to add to our pivot table. These fields are all the column titles from the data table we choose. That is why we want to have clear and informative column titles so it is easier for us to make the pivot table For example, we choose Salesperson as the row labels, product as the column labels.
In order to do this we can just drag the fields to the areas below.
Now if we look at the pivot table, we have row and column labels displayed. The next step would be to choose a value that we want to summarize.
The possible values that we could summarize would be unit cost, quantity and sales. In this case, we want to summarize information about quantity sold. This table shows the quantity in different products sold by each salesperson. We could also choose to display the percentage instead of the counts. In order to do it, click on the "i" icon next to the Sum of Quantity in the Values area. In the pop-up window, select Options. Under the "Show Data As", click the drop-up icon next to "Normal". Click OK and you will get the pivot table showing percentage of each type of product that a salesperson sold.
You could include more information in the pivot table by adding subcategories. For example, if we want to separate male and female salespersons. We use the same method mentioned above to create a blank pivot table that includes the gender data. When you use this feature, Excel determines a meaningful layout by matching the data with the most suitable areas in the PivotTable. This helps give you a starting point for additional experimentation.
