Knowing how to create Pivot Table was a one of the best things I have ever learnt in Excel. I can analyze large amount of data, from a few hundred rows to a few million rows. And when you create a pivot table that is good, your boss will ask you to prepare the multiple copies, one for each category. That's when it becomes a pain.
I started the process by repeatedly go to the source, insert a Pivot Table, set up the format, and choose one of the categories. Then I discovered that I could simpley copy the worksheet containing the Pivot Table, change the report filter and change the worksheet name. It became faster. But that's wsn't the end of the story. I discover there is a function in Pivot Table tha very few people know about. It's called "Show Report Filter Pages". If you want to learn, contine reading or watch the video below.
Step 1: Select a cell within the Pivot Table
Step 2: Go to the Analyze tab which appears only when you select the Pivot Table.
Step 3: Click on the small dropdown button next to Options.
Step 4: Select "Show Report Filter Pages".
Step 5: Select the category containing the values to create multiple tables.
You should be able to see all the worksheet tabs, each labelled with one category.
