Today I want to share with you a very useful feature of MS Excel (i.e. PivotTable).

In Microsoft Excel, you can pivot data in a PivotTable or PivotChart report by changing the field layout of the data. By using the PivotTable Field List, you can add, rearrange, or remove fields to show data in a PivotTable or PivotChart exactly the way that you want.
