Pivotal tables

I’ve just seen a job ad requiring experience in pivotal tables!


I totally think pivot tables are an excellent feature, and they probably have been pivotal in the way I design systems. Shame the job was offering peanuts.

Have you seen any humorous Excel mistakes recently?

    While not Excel related, I did get an agency call once for a ‘Hyperion’ role.
    Was that Hyperion Essbase or Hyperion Enterprise I enquired.
    “What’s the difference” came the response.

    Pivot Tables are the bomb.

    Please forgive my ignorance on this matter, but are pivotal tables really useless or something? I was thinking of learning how to build these but if they’re just plain stupid I might as well drop that.
