Excel tips and tricks

Before you can start using Pivot Table reports you need to ensure three things:

  1. Your data headings are across the top of your data, these will be used as the fields in the report
  2. There are no blanks in your data, this can cause blanks in your reports with figures that relate to no particular data
  3. If your data contains formulas, check there are no errors as these could lead to incorrect totals or error messages in your report
