Introduction to Power Pivot


Duration: 1.5 hours

Power Pivot removes the limit of one table, one report for your Pivot Tables. You can combine data from multiple sources into a single report. You can summarise tables in relational databases without involving the database administrator or having to have a View created.

Its a pivot table on steroids (in a good way). Power Pivot can report on virtually any relational data base as well as bringing together data from different sources into a single report. Eg combining a csv file; an Access database and an Excel table.

We will use an Access database in this session. YOU DO NOT NEED TO HAVE ACCESS INSTALLED ON YOUR PC/LAPTOP.

The session will cover

  • background information on using relational databases
  • creating a PowerPivot report from a large relational database
  • adding tables to the data model to expand the reporting possibilities
  • techniques to make the report more reader-friendly
  • hiding fields to simplify the interface
  • using Slicers
  • an introduction to DAX
  • books and websites to help you learn more
