The first session of the series introduces the PivotTable feature and covers the basics. We start here to ensure that all participants, regardless of previous PivotTable experience, have the skills needed for the remaining sessions. We discuss the four report layout areas, rows, columns, values, and filters. We then discuss how to update PivotTable reports and ensure that any new transactions appended to the data source are included in the report. We explore how to create monthly columns and how to properly format the values in a PivotTable.
