What is a Pivot Table? A short definition.

1 minute reading time

A pivot table is a tool that is used to summarize and organize large amounts of data in a spreadsheet or database.

Pivot tables allow users to rearrange and group data in order to see different perspectives and gain insights that might not be immediately apparent from looking at the raw data.

Pivot tables are commonly used in business and finance to analyze data and make better decisions.

For example, a pivot table can be used to compare the sales of different products across different regions, or to analyze the profitability of different customers over time.

Pivot tables are highly flexible and can be customized to show only the data that is most relevant to the user’s needs.
