PivotTables are great ways to summarize, analyze, explore, and present summary data, and in Excel for the web you can also collaborate with someone on a PivotTable at the same time.

  1. Select the cells you want to create a PivotTable from.

  2. Select Insert > PivotTable.

  3. Under Choose the data that you want to analyze, select Select a table or range.

  4. In Table/Range, verify the cell range.

  5. Under Choose where you want the PivotTable report to be placed, select New worksheet to place the PivotTable in a new worksheet or Existing worksheet and then select the location you want the PivotTable to appear.

  6. Select OK.

  7. To add a field to your PivotTable, select the field name checkbox in the PivotTables Fields pane.

    Note: Selected fields are added to their default areas: non-numeric fields are added to Rows, date and time hierarchies are added to Columns, and numeric fields are added to Values.

  8. To move a field from one area to another, drag the field to the target area.

  9. Select Share, type in their name, and select Send to invite a colleague to collaborate on the workbook with you.
