Case Study: Pivot Tables and Charts

Pivot Tables in Microsoft Excel is a powerful features that enables you to get valuable information from a huge list of data.

One of the examples we take you through using the Excel Course exercise files is how we used Pivot Tables and charts to help us understand when students were enrolling into courses.

Between 2000-2004 when the Internet was new and there was no such thing as online training we did a LOT of beginners training – Absolute Beginners – and taught people how to use Windows, file management, editing text and emailing and Internet and we wanted to know when people prefer to do these courses.

Learn about Excel Pivot tables and pivot table charts

We had the information we knew – that Absolute Beginners’ and Excel were the most popular courses and that we could offer these courses in the morning, just after lunch or in the evening. You’ll be able to use our exact data in a Pivot table to see when students like to come to a training centre to do a course – we used this information to schedule our courses up to 6 months in advance!

Luckily today we don’t have to do that. In fact you don’t need to choose what skill level you are at because we include all our Microsoft Excel Courses for the one price (we also do this for our Word, MYOB, Xero and WordPress courses).
We started recording our first training videos back in 2003 so we could also compare the number of students who learnt using the EzyLearn videos or via class-based training and you’ll see all of this information in our advanced courses.

Why Online Excel Training Courses?

It’s a great thing that we create our own Excel training courses and exercise files because what we discovered was that students prefer to learn when they want and at their own pace! Even back then we knew that there had to be a better way than scheduling rooms, courses and trainers around holidays, sick days and long weekends. Read about our journey from a physical training centre business to an online training company.

As owners of our own Microsoft Excel Course Training workbooks, videos and exercise files – and with a low cost model of hosting and online support – we can provide ALL of our content for one low price (AND the option of LIFETIME course access). Best of all you get access to new material and updated content during your membership period.
