PivotTables are a great way to analyze a large amount of data. They operate on a table that contains raw data and produces a table of summary data. A PivotTable allows you to summarize information in a variety of ways. This ability to view the same data from multiple perspectives gives PivotTables their name. PivotTables were designed to rotate, or pivot, the data around a particular aspect. Consider a cylinder, for example. From the end it looks like a circle, while from the side it looks like a rectangle. A PivotTable provides graphical tools to quickly change perspectives so you can determine which views are most useful.
