Excel 2007 provides powerful data analysis tools that enable you to explore large amounts of data and to make educated business decisions based on that data. With PivotTable reports you can interactively summarize data, making it easier to analyze and present the results. PivotChart reports provide a graphical view of PivotTable report data. Using Goal Seek and Solver enables you to retrieve required results from formulas by determining the data the formula requires. You can also use additional what-if analysis components, data tables and scenarios, to view how value changes in formulas affect the formula results and to forecast worksheet outcome models respectively. This course covers advanced data analysis features, such as PivotTable and PivotChart reports, Goal Seek, Solver, scenarios, data tables, and OLAP.
